if you go weight for weight you SHOULD be fine just the height of column to watch.
and the difference between 7/8th and 3/4 isnt really that much...buy a box and try some...you never know sam I am you may just like green eggs n ham

This load kills mallards at 40 yards all day long for me with the "Standard" small #5 steel pellets.
Reason for the 5's is that I like teal better than most ducks on the BBQ.
#4's will only gain you about 7 yards and have less pellets.............but if you think you need more energy
and less pellets working for you, go for it.
