#4 will flat out kill anything that flies, if you shoot alot of geese go with 4's, if more ducks get the 6's

If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

Duck Hunting is ALL about the bag.

For ducks use the 6's or better yet find some 71/2 shot. On geese use 4's or 5's.

:withstupid: 3" is unnecessary

I reloaded #5's at 1450 fps last year in 2 3/4" Fed Gold Medal
with the Sam 1 wad.

This load droped ducks on a calm day at 65 yardswith a mod. choke.

# 6 should work great out to 55 yards with no problems !!

Give them a 8 foot lead and pull the trigger....

Good luck Sage

If your stuck between #6 and #4 wouldn't #5's seem like a logical #.
