I can get 128 in the 10 at 40 yards with the 3.5 inch 2oz #5 grand slams and indian creek choke with a nice even pattern out to 20 inches.  However, the 2 1/4 oz version doesn't pattern nearly as well. 
If you're not first, your last!!

Late 90s maybe even 2000-2002. Not very old.

My favorites were the Fed Classic 3.5" 2.25 oz #6.  Put down a ton of birds with my 835 and factory turkey choke, which i believe is a .690.  130-140 pellet patterns were common.
