MIKE GEORGE says: Most club sporting targets are presented at relatively short range, so I would go for Number 8. This shot should give you a good pattern density, which is particularly important when tackling edge-on crossers.

If you have doubts, then buy a single box and try them first, before you buy your 1,000 or whatever.
