I'll be interested to hear if the dense pattern theory gives you more dead on the ground wc Larry.

One year I was smashing clays with a few boxes of #9 that they were giving out at a fund raiser shoot so I took them into the woods that Fall. I never had so many head up woodcock before. That is about the worst for me, can't stand to have that little dark eye look at me as I dispatch them.

Moral of the story, I went the other way ever since, that season started me on my bigger shot is better kick about 8 years ago.

Larry, you of all people should have a better solution--get a grouse and woodcock gun!

Bosco, I actually have a couple with more open chokes.  Both also slightly lighter.  But I shot quite well with this one . . . although I'll probably use both of the others next season as well.

Scott, I've used 8 1/2's, and occasionally even 9's, early season in a 28ga.  Somewhat tighter choke than what I get with spreaders, but then I'll also have another 1/8 oz of pellets in the 20ga.

I'm just glad when one of my pellets hits a bird.

And it dies.
