Hmm... the clubs/ranges I shoot at doesn't say anything about it and they all know what I shoot.
Well maybe its just those clubs/ranges then.
In any case I'm not suggesting that everyone use #6 but well that's what I do and have done for years. I've had a lot of guys ask me why I'm handicapping myself by using #6 shot AND shooting out of an 18" barrel but nobody said anything else really.
This is who we are, what we do.
