I have a 3 1/2 1187 SP and I was wondering if I was to buy more expensive shells, would they help the knock down Power?

Hevi shot I have used and I hear Kent's W-matrix some good stuff. It has noticeably more energy than the steel loads. I limit my range but I noticed that I was not having to clean up as many cripples. I swear you could completely body shoot a bird with Hevi shot and it will dropo stone dead. Its good stuff. Only beware that it is as hard as steel and can damage older guns......my 50yo Beretta o/u does not shoot hevi-shot for this reason. Good luck patterning some new loads :)

HeviShot, HeviShot, HeviShot. I have used it extensively for the past 5 seasons and it is amazing. 1.5 oz #6 seem to pattern the best in my Beretta's and Benilli's. One of my duck hunting buddies shoots an 1187 and now will not shoot anything but HeviShot through it due to the demonstrable difference in knock-down power.
