squirrel loads.
 
I own a 870 and when squirrel hunting I have always used 6 shot heavy game loads with modified choke. Is using cheap 7 1/2s going to give the same results?

No not in my experience they will do fine at 10-15 yards but.farther than that you will have some get away...I use number 4s with a modified or full choke

3"number 4s in a 410 are fun to hunt squirrels with too

I have killed many squirrels with my Rem. Express Super Mag with 2 3/4 shells, 7.5 shot and modified choke.

Just keep using #6, I can get it for $5.50 a box here.

I use #6 or #4. Fewer pellets to spit out, and easier to find than the finer shot.
