Doing a little math, if energy=MassXacceleration(Squared).
1 oz at 1150 fps should be equal in energy to 7/8oz at 1230fps. I'll do a few test loads and see what happens.
For almost 20 years I was one of those that shot 3/4 oz. or 7/8 oz. in everything up to including the 12 ga. Started when lead broke $9 a bag. It wasn't until I got my A5 Sweet 16 that I changed my thought process. And attending enough shoots based on ga. lately.
If I am shooting a 16 I am shooting 1 oz. if at all possible. And 1 1/8 oz. in the 12. And 7/8 oz. in the 20. I am very recoil sensitive and the Sweet 16 handles recoil extremely well IMO. Yes I have a couple thousand lime green cheddite hulls with 7/8 oz. in DR16 wads for some of my 16's. But am moving toward 1 oz. loads for the 16 for the most part especially in the A5 Sweet.
Just my 2 cents worth and a fairly recent revelation. Well not too recent. Have yet to met an AA27AA ATA shooter that says they shoot even 1 oz. They will tell you the reason they shoot 1 1/8 oz. is because they will not let them shoot 1 1/4 oz. Not that I am a Class A or better ATA shooter and prefer skeet, SC or 5 stand over trap any day of the week. But the principle theory and application still applies. Again just my 2 cents worth.
