. . . . when I was in high school in the 60's the football coach and I would shoot sparrows in the gym using 22's and rat shot, things sure have changed

And changed for the worst with all this gun phobia that's been purposefully created by politicians, preying on the ignorance of people who've never been around guns in a positive way.

When I was in high school, I had two teachers that I would sometimes go bird (that means quail where I come from) hunting with after school. I'd simply bring my shotgun, shells & vest to school, and set it all in the corner of one of their offices (which were shared offices with other teachers). No one was concerned about it, nor did they need be.

In my junior year, in my English class, I even did a "research paper" on the merits of Remington vs. Browning shotguns, bringing both into class so everyone could compare the differences. I was a "Browning" man (maybe a Browning "boy" at the time), and so was my English teacher, Mr. Miller. Thought I did a good job on the project, and did get an "A+" on my research paper. \:\)

man did we hijack this thread, lol

spring 1968, I purchased a .22-250, could not get ammo at the time, I carried rifle into my homeroom and laid it on Mr T. B. Southards desk and told him the ammo problem, Mr. T. B.'s hobby was reloading, he simply stated to leave the rifle with him and he would figure something out, about 2:00 pm that day the Principal of Haywood High School barks out on the intercom system telling me to report to my home room, scared the crap out of me, anyways when I walk into homeroom Mr T B tells me that there is a set of reloading dies at YorkArms downtown Memphis and that he did not expect me to answer roll call the next morning at homeroom, aka he told me to skip school drive to Memphis and purchase the dies, so I did, little did I know that it would snow 18 inches March 21 or 22, 1968, just a few days later MLK was killed in Memphis and YorkArms never seemed the same after everything sorta settled down

picked up 4 boxes of Winchester Super X 1 ounce 7 1/2 shot last night. Have shot these before and they are just plain old shot shells that will kill a dove... now the bad part is my shooting, and if all goes well I am about to head out the door and shoot some clay...

I shoot 7 1/2 usually federal or Winchesters. last year I found a smoking deal on a case of estates and they did pretty good but I didn't like them as good as federals or Winchesters. ive shot 8 shot before but I like 7 1/2 the best.

I have a lot less cripples with 7.5 shot, but you're loosing about 50 pellets going from 8's to 7.5's. The Walmart federals shoot cleaner and usually more reliable than both the Remington and Winchesters they sell. Hope this helps
