This is for mostly mallards with others species mixed in.
If it flies it dies, if it just sits there it dies too.

I hunt close in timber and prefer the Kent 1 1/4 #3 @ 1425fps.
"Thomas Jefferson said I had a God-given right to pursue happiness. What makes me happy is to take a mallard's head smooth off at about 20 feet.

Not on your list, but 2 3/4 inch, 1 1/16 oz. #3's at 1550. Places we hunt the shots are usually under 35 yards.

BB, 1's, 2's 3's, 4's, & 6's. 2 3/4", 3", 3 1/2". I'm not picky and they all kill ducks at their intended ranges.

3 1/2" 1 9/16oz. They work great on ducks at 1 yard and geese at 40.
