I've seen ducks swim across the Mississippi river before you could unbeach a boat blind to go get them.

Note: Small shot (#6) is excellent for swatter loads to kill waterfowl hit, but not
dead on the water.

I feel slightly sorry for a man who has never patterned his gun, who has no idea how far his chosen load will retain killing penetration. But I'm extremely sorry for the ducks he shoots at beyond the killing range of his gun and load - Bob Brister
