Look at the FPS anything 1200 to 1300 range is pretty good stuff.
Most of the magnum stuff is low velocity meant to get the hunter.

Here is an example of tons of this stuff is sold. It has more pellets and longer it must be better mentality.

Doesn't matter if it is 28 gauge or 10 maximum pressure is 13000 psi.
If you increase the payload you have to reduce the powder.
Again powder to shot is equal in all gauges increasing payload doesn't make a shotgun more effective.
It is about pattern a 28 ga is designed for a 3/4 oz load 20 for 7/8 16 for 1 and so on . Bigger doesn't make better
Drams of powder shot equivalent hasn't changed since back powder loading.

Sky I have shot them to doll rags and actually had to throw away both shoulders to having them drop in their tracks from one buckshot.
That's been with double aught as well.
I have a model 97 that I know that has killed over 200 with #1's.
It gets back to that pesky pattern and getting them in the boiler room.

00 AND 000 Never have many issues but # 1 is a whole other story. I use to shoot Remington a lot and it mostly happened with those. I switched to federal but that white crap kept falling out a lot so then switched to Winchester. I am satisfied with the 00 never shot any #1's though.

Sky an ounce of shot is an ounce no matter the size.
That is 8 00 or 11 #1 a 00 is .34 cal #1 are .30 cal.
It all gets down how much of the ounce you put on the target.
Standard 12 gauge load is a 1 1/4 ounce.

that's awesome these guns today you gotta get custom chokes and work done to the guns to get them to shoot worth a S... every one of my new guns has to go to the shop and get worked on my old 1100's out the box were awesome with 30" barrels
