    Handloads?
    My .720 Terror really likes BBB and it doesn't really matter.
    1 3/8oz - 1 3/4oz. It patterns 1 9/16oz BB's very well also.

    I shoot a fixed choked (.025) IM barrel on my 870 , which throws a great Full Choke pattern so the constriction of (some) full Waterfowl chokes
    are not what you'd be getting on a patterning board . The size of shot will also change th
    I shoot a white Lightning in 20 ga , did you try a LM /Mod with 7/8 oz of 3's ? They sure work well in my Invector Plus extended chokes !
    Sometimes with larger payloads of bigger shot sizes , the pinging effect of to much radial pressure from to tight of choke constriction blows patterns !
