The "original" EM HeviShot was supposed to have been 12 gm/cc and then (post-Remington loading it) it allegedly was loaded (HS "Duck") at ~9 gm/cc but has since went back to ~12 gm/cc after they (EMI) were outed for selling the lighter stuff w/o disclosing such.

Those are the shells that I want my little boy to shoot this year in his 20 gauge Franchi.

They are 12g/cc, they will be perfect for his 20ga. I'd go with some of the #2s or #4s. They will kill anything that's in range of his shotgun.

Hevi-shot #2's for duck in a 20? you have to be kidding... I'd imagine it WILL kill within range, considering the max range is going to be about 70-75 yards on ducks. Little overkill.
Why do I shoot 3.5" for geese? Because they don't make a 4" yet!
