same here, the 30 gm pigeon express. i think for the higher birds( flight lining) the 5's are better for me.
i use the same on pigeon,pheasant,woodcock............. only bigger for duck and geese( non lead of course).

Walking round the farms or doing a pest control round on the shoot then it's 32g 6's every time. Always keep two napier snap loaders with 52g BB's in my handwarmer pocket for special occasion though ;)

I use Hull Sterling game 32g 6 shot in 12 guage and the same in a 20 bore (28g 6's). Very good consistent cartridge.

Hi,
I have been using 7.5 @ 30gm fibre wad this year with great success.I am informed that the fibre wad spreads quicker than plastic and I have had great results on pigeon, pheasant and woodcock.Prior to this I used Express 6 @ 32gm

do you not find the 7 and a half a lack in stopping power for pigeon?
up to 25 yards ok but i often shoot( set up my decoys) at 30-45 yards and find they are hit but don't drop. i'm all for smaller shot( shock being the killer and not organ damage/penetration) but have found 7's too light for pigeon and have not used them on pheasant/ducks.

30 grm Clear Pigeon fibre wad . Faultless cartridge , I use them all the time on rabbit, pigeon, crows etc. Highly recommended. Also use 28 grm paper case (no. 6 shot) for posh days. Local gun shop name but loaded by Hull. Go well in my AYA.
