That's what's great about that Spartan load of #1 (that's SA2000 - if anyone finds some for sale, I need all of it you can buy). It's 9-pellets (I misremembered when I said 8-pellets) of #1 or about .84oz shot load at 1200fps that's about 1/3rd of an ounce lighter than 9-pellet 00. That makes it a true "20-gauge load" of buck.

At least there is a good slug load. Brennekke THD, 308gr (.70 oz) @ 1200fps.
I literally had a dream last night that I SBSed one of my 20ga 870s and it was good.
