Copper plated shot really doesn't give you much of an advantage. Just costs more money. If you want plated shot the one to use is nickel plated shot. A high quality shot like Winchester will perform every bit as well as copper plated.I use a 20 gauge for all upland. I like Fiocchi Golden Pheasant or Winchester 3" shells and 1 1/4 oz of 6's.For you guys who say you like high base loads.......There are a lot of misconceptions regarding shotshells. High base refers to the base wad inside the shell. It's the wad at the very bottom of the shell under the powder. Most modern shells no longer have a base wad. The high base wad was used in light target loads because less shot was used in the shell. The last shell I can remember that used a base wad was the Winchester paper target shell which was one of my favorites. Winchester quit making them when they came out with the AA shells. There was a problem with the paper base wad as it sometimes was blown into the barrel causing damage to the barrel when the next shot was fired.Maybe you mean a high brass shell?? Well......that means nothing either. Shotshell manufacturers put high brass on some of their hunting loads to make hunters think they were getting something really powerful. I can safely duplicate any 2 3/4" magnum load in a AA case with the low brass. Same thing with a 3" shell. The high brass is about as necessary as the belt on magnum rifle cartridges. It's a sales gimmick.
I was going to say just that. Wild birds take more to kill them I use to buy those copper jacket shot shells fom winchester they would knock a wild bird down good.

Real tractors have two cylinders and hand clutches.
My rifle is mine, it isn't for sale, and I only give guns to people that I really like.
