Hi, I shoot a Beretta silver pigeon in 28 gauge. Over the years I have used most brands of shells with good luck with all on sage grouse and pheasants. This year I shot most of my birds with the federal shells sold at Wal-Mart. I am a fan of Federal's shotgun loads. The little gun helps as well as everyone who picks it up can shoot it, just points naturally seemingly for all.What is your upland bird load ?? and what birds do you hunt with your 28ga?
