I get to pick up my first shotgun on Monday and not sure what shells would be best for sporting clays. It will be for a Benelli Montefeltro 20 gauge. Any help would be great thank you

Winchester AA Sportsport 7/8oz 7.5s would be ideal but are pricey.. Remington STS Sporting Clays are another option... Basically any load with 7.5 shot and a velocity of between 1250-1300 is about ideal... When I'm being budget conscious, I use a 12 gauge field load with 1 oz of 7.5s at 1290 FPS... Its not an AA or STS but it works if I do my part..

I shoot Estate 1oz of 8's going 1185 fps, and they seem to do the job just fine.

Anything going 1300 fps will beat the hell out of you.

Step 1: go to walmart
Step 2: buy federal bulk pack of ammo
Step 3: go shooting all day
