I use 7 1/2 shot in my .28 gauge for them.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: quail and chuckar shot size

I would use 7 1/2 for both of them. You could even use 8 if
just out for quail but I still prefer 7 1/2 shot.

I'd rather be fishing or hunting!

71/2 or 7 if I can find it.
