Shot size on practical rage

For shotguns, what is the maximum shot size and weight we can use on the appropriate steel plates on the practical range? I want to give something hopefully a fair amount bigger than an ounce of 6s a try if possible!

 

Thanks

stick with 7 1/2 Brad as some of the plates are right next to a no shoot plate and you dont want to slap it with a big shot , if you want to wallop the steel then just put a tight choke on.

slow is smooth smooth is fast

I've used 32Gr No6 no problems when breaking in my gun.  

Just don't use steel shot as they're banned!

Could also give buckshot a go but NOT at steel targets
