    There's certainly nothing wrong with trying something different.

    Sometimes that's the best way to find out what you like the best.

    Federal 7.5 shot vs Federal 4 shot....I put 2 loads on each target from 21ft.
    I`m surprised that the 7.5 performed better that the heavy 4 shot.
    So in close quarters where over penetration is a concern I would go with the 7.8 shot!

    I ran some Federal #4 Buck and some 00 through the little SW this morning with typically good results....At 21ft the 00 produces a spread at about 4" and the #4 is right at 5". The 00 has 9 pellets and the #4 has 27 and both have a muzzle velocity of 1325 fps. Both loads have a little kick to `em but they`re easily controllable under recoil.

    I ran some of Federal`s low recoil 1oz slugs through the SW this morning and they shoot soft and hit hard....
