If you americans are wandering,80 mtrs is about 90 yds
I like this advice a lot, sure you might hit it but how well even with express turkey or dead coyote loads I would want more. When I use to shoot competive sporting clays 80 yards shots were few and far between. Maybe some teels that flew strait up and I would be running full choke 7 1/2 loads. A world class shooter might brake them. I was shooting a Beretta AL390 28"
To awnser you inital question yes, but it depends how much based on if the target it moving or not.
