No! Go smaller, like 6 shot. You wouldn't want to get hit with #4 shot when the guys on other side are shooting. Plus some places have restrictions and won't allow pellets that big. Where is the towershoot? You should check with the preserve where the shoot is going down

I say #6 low brass is fine. I have shot several tower shoots with 12 and 20 ga. Use the full choke during the tower. I have one question where do you buy 3" high brass shells in 7/8 or 1 oz loads? Never heard of that? 20 ga 6 shot for both would be fine with 1 oz loads in low brass.. Last time I used 12 ga for tower I used 6 low brass and mod choke. Had no problem.
One thing to remember about high brass vs low brass is it is alot of marketing..
Now that most are posting the velocity rather then the dram equivalent of powder you can really compare what you are getting for your money. Remington makes a low brass heavy dove load that is equal to alot of the high brass stuff. It has orange stripe on the green box and is alot cheaper..
