      Yep, 7 1/2 and 8 will work on bobs, but blues, you better hit hard, or they will find a rat tunnel or a rabbit hole. Then you ain't recovering them.

                Went today and got 2 bags of shot, 20ga AA wads. And 12ga AA wads. They had quite a bit of shot and wads. Said he had shotgun primers in packs of 1000. I never knew that place existed. 5 stand range, skeet rangs, rifle range and I even saw some archery targets. Didn't really look for any other stuff.

                  Wish WW still made the WW-540 powder. That was some great stuff in 1-1/18 to 1-1/4oz from AA hulls with a W209 and AA12 wad.

                    I've been shooting International Clay's in both 12 and 20's for years. Shoots good and pretty darn clean.

                        Did you know that ww540 is the same powder as Hodgdon HS6?

                          Yeah, I've read that. I guess I just naturally resist the thought of WW being bought out. Along with every thing else being consolidated.

                          The fish are biting and there's hogs to be kill-t. Gotta go!

                              Ballistic Products is running a sale on shipping for shot. Up to 50# for $19.99. Still too expensive for me but maybe it works for you. May need to take out a second mortgage to buy fuel to go to Trainer Hale.

                                I think the shot was around $56 at Trainer Hale.
