It just seemed like the spreads were too scattered, and my shots were at 20 - 25 yards.
Anyone have similar experiences?? or have an 887 and found an ammo that's the bees knees for it??

It's just weird that I had no issues using the Steel Full choke with BB Drylok for early goose, but once i ran the #3 and 4 through it it just didnt seem to work. Anyways, I've dropped down to my Imp Cylinder steel choke, we'll see how this Satrudays local opener goes.
I'm only going to shoot at decoying birds and not passing till I figure out what the deal is.
I shot sporting clays just yesterday, and did well, so I dont know maybe the excitement of all the ducks flying on Friday got the better of me.
Regardless, thanks for all the solid feedback folks, not one bit of bad information or tips here.
