3 1/2" 1 3/8 oz. #2 1550 fps or 3 1/2" 1 9/16 oz. #2 1350 fps
I have always understood that the more oz you have the more pellets you have also, but with loosing the fps will it actually mater in the killing/wounding ability. opinions please

Keep in mind that added energy is only a benefit if you are hitting your target....more pellets give you a better chance of that happening even if it is at slightly lower energy.

I can get both shells at $155 a case. just was not sure exactly which ones would be best, I have always believed that the more pellets in the sky, the better you would have odds at killing a duck than with fewer pellets. I would think the speed should not matter that much either.
I have had good luck with the patternmaster tube, i also have a kicks but it just seems not to drop ducks as does the PM. is there any other choke tubes yall use that you would recommend, not that i am changing but for the sake of conversation. one other question if I may, does anyone know the difference in the 3 lines of chokes that Pattenmaster has out now?
