Elvis, did you discover some relation for the different chokes between steel and lead pellets? Can you share that? I know the relation between weight and numbers. And I also know that the smaller pellets listen better to the choke than the coarse. But I don't know any relation between steel and lead for the different chokes.
I know that 24 gram of 7 1/2 steel (a steel claybird round) works extremely well in my FN Auto-5 with full choke, even when the doves fly over very high. With my Beretta I usualy need steel nummber 5 for about the same performance. My Beretta equiped with (****) and (***), where (*) is full.

ok the theory is that steel patterns 2 degrees tighter as it doesnt deform like lead. we are advised not to use more than a 1/2 or modified choke for steel shot.
but........
guys are now starting to play/experiment with tighter chokes all be it in the external type so that if any damage is going to occur it will be to a removable choke and not your barrel.
larger steel shot is more inclinded to "bridge" so tight chokes not recommended at all or damage may occur
personally I think some of the newer smaller payload loads 1 1/16th and below SHOULD be fine as they wont/shouldnt be as crowded in the choke region.

Elvis, just try the 7/8 Oz of steel 7 1/2 in a full choke caliber 12 and be surprised. (not only by its price, but also by its performance on flying birds). And most of the time these arel low pressure loads also.

We also have here a Lyalvale Express steel shot cal. 12 with 23 grams doing 520 m/s, but that's already higher pressure, so better take a steelproved gun.

I have a few 7.5s and they didnt do any good for me...frightened the bejesus out of a possom up tree inside our camp on opening weekend 2012. 8 rounds as fast as I could work the defender had the possom too scared to climb down so he got shot the next morning for staying around. Ive got a bit of the shot left over from some we pulled so I might just load it up hot for the boy to use on those in your face birds right on dusk.

I have found Picassa works for me. Just export the picture(s) in a different size and resolution. I use this feature for uploading to the two websites I help maintain for the local Shriners. On my Android phone and tablet I use Picsart.

MacD:

Picassa does have bugs and will not scale the image accurately., I stand behind Gimp for windows and Unix/Linux, Mac etc. Only been developing and programing for Unix/Linux 30 years plus contributed to the development of gimp.

But for you windows users, here is a right click on the file that will give u the opportunity to resize via windows power toys available here.
