I use red box Federal Premium from Rogers. 3" #3's. They seem to shoot well from my gun. (old 870, fixed full choke) I can't tell you how they'll shoot from your gun. My best advice for how to keep cripple loss to a minumum is (A): Don't take long shots. And (B): Maintain the ability to close the distance to a downed bird quickly to finish him off.

I know these ducks fly a lot faster and in crossing patterns then compared to mallards and puddlers which decoy into a spread. Just moved to the Florida panhandle and have never hunted divers before.
