    3 gun shotgun ammo, what to use?

    I'd like to hear what you use for 3 gun shotgun ammo.

    Slugs, does it matter? 1oz or 1 1/8oz? Is there a felt recoil difference?

    I've been using 7.5 shot target loads so far, heard #4 is better for steel. Again, does it matter?

    I generally just purchase the least expensive of whatever works. I will consider paying more for good reason but I'm not really planning on winning anything. It's just so much fun!

    1 oz slug, and 7.5 target load.

    I know some guys take big spinners with heavy hunting loads. But everything I've been at have had rules about thing larger than 7

    It comes down to what distance your shooting at really for farther shots # 4 is better but up close a solid hit with 7.5 will work also ! Choke selection plays a large part in this also ! I only have a cylinder bore so heavier is better for me

    i am going to run light modified in my gun this year... nif briley ever gets me the chokes, otherwise imp. cylinder..... running 1 1/8th trap loads in the versamax.

    mossberg 590a1 18" i run federal high brass field loads in #6 lead.... cyl. bore, i find the steel base trap loads will not function fast in this gun and will stick in the chamber.... this is something everyone shouls check before shooting, somr guns just do not like the cheap steel base ammo

    Yep. 7 or smaller and no steel shot. Steel can get you an auto DQ.
