I like Terry Wieland.  In the latest issue of Grays he picks his favorite factory shotshell loads.  It's a good short read.

I always wonder how an expert goes about picking favorite loads.

I pick my loads based on how they look, feel, and smell.  I like high brass shells with nice crimps, a good texture to the plastic, and that smell nice when I open the action and the lingering smoke wafts back toward me.  That's all I've got to go on since I can't tell one bit of difference in how they work.

I wonder how Wieland picks his favorites (?).

By the amount of B&P shells mentioned,  they probably supply him. :D

Partridge hunters know that it doesn't take much to bring down our favorite bird. That said, my first barrel (CYL) choice is a load of 7/8oz #7.5 and the cheap stuff (Federal Game Load) fits the bill. Second barrel will have a 1oz load at 1165fps or thereabouts. I've been using Remington factory loads but I suspect any brand at that speed would do. I'll do some pattern work with 1oz factory vs reloads this summer.
At an average distance of 23 yards (Spiller?) 1165 fps is fast enough.
