7/8oz sz 8 kills them pretty dead

7.5s worked this evening.  Put him in the instant pot over a bed of apples and onions.  Pretty tasty and very quick.

Cheapest 7/8 7.5 shot with a ic choke works fine on both ruffs and blues for me they are not that tough.

My shots are always pretty close though hard to get a long shot in the areas I hunt.
