dakotashooter2 wrote:A 1oz load of #7s has over twice the pellet count of a 1 oz load of #4s. At 20-25 yards that means you will probably have twice the pellets,if not more, on a bird than you would with #4. While #7s wont have the same energy you will get some copmensation through pellet count. It the range stated I doubt you could tell the difference.

You must not have any teeth ? If you do , don't shoot 7's , stay with 4's or larger to keep that smile .

Give it a shot!

When I shoot doves at 15 yards with 7s there isn't much left of them.
