The Bismuth #8 shot at 1300 fps looks like it would be a good Dove load.

From KPY Shotshell Ballistics
1300 fps Bismuth #8 shot gets .80 inches of penetration at 35.9 yards and is going 596 fps at 35.9 yards with about 232 pellets in 1/2 ounce.

1200 fps Bismuth #7 shot gets .99 inches of penetration at 36.0 yards and is going 607 fps at 36.0 yards with about 169 pellets in 1/2 ounce.

Look at how the 100 fps slower starting #7 shot is going faster at 36.0 yards than the Bismuth #8 shot is, even though the Bismuth #8 shot started out faster.
