I have been shooting 3/4oz 20ga loads for desert quail for years. Loaded with #7 shot they seem to be a better load than the same shot in 7/8oz. Which improvement I think may be a result of a shorter shot string and somewhat higher velocity (I just used the formula for regular 7/8oz loads but shorted the lead to 3/4oz along with the minimum powder load. Less recoil and better results for less money too. Put enough rice crispys under the shot to fill the cup when I started this but now just add one cardboard filler instead.
