    What do you shoot? What would you shoot without price concerns?

    Doesn't really matter, what ever I have left over from hunting season. Have used field loads all the way up to no.4 buck shot, all worked fine!

    The cheapest 7 1/2s I can find. Usually promo loads available around dove season at Wallyworld or some such.

    I use a hand loaded 12 gauge 1 1/8 oz of hard sixes at 1250 usually through a mod choke if i stay hidden well enough the first shot is close but the second is out there. They get out pretty quick. If you want the load I'll look it up and send it to you.

    I like #6 lead in a 1-1/4 oz field load. It allows you to reach out for those 45 yard overhead shots. I can buy them for 5.99 at our local discount center. During our Wisconsin winter season for crows I have hunted in single digit temps and with cold shells you loose some performance, thus the need to go with #6 shot vs 7-1/2 is even more important.

    Wood Duck to used to use a similar load, but shot the 1 1/8 same speed did not notice a difference in killing them out as far as I could hit them as long as I use 6's. Plus the recoil was less. Saw an oat field full of crows this AM while scouting for geese. Cant hunt em for another couple weeks
