  1. All of my pheasant hunting is stocked birds here in Mass., and I hunt over good pointing dogs. Almost all shots are fairly close, less than 30 yds. I use a 20 ga. side-by-side with Modified & Improved Cyl. chokes. I put a 1 oz. 2 3/4" lead #6 heavy field load in the Improved barrel and I use a 3" 1 1/4 oz. #6 lead (Remington Nitro Mag) in the modified barrel for the second shot. Sometimes I use a very light 12 ga. Black Powder double, and when I use this one, I use 1 1/8 oz. of #6 lead shot with 90 grains of FFG black powder. Either gun works just about the same on pheasants (deadly). When hunting quail or partridge (grouse to you!) I always use # 7 1/2 lead shot. I only use 2 3/4" 7/8 oz. cheapo field and trap loads on these birds, I find it to to be plenty good enough. In the BP 12 ga. double, I just switch shot size and use the same charge of BP and shot that I use on pheasants. Lenny B
