Plus blackclouds are the wrong round for that, they don't have the right ballistics at that range. Blindsides seem to be pretty good though because of the diamond cut wads. Plus most of the people who try this don't have the proper barrel or choke.

FYI wrong load and choke if you are making duck burger at 10 yards. Try using a improved choke and 2-3/4"#4 instead of extrafull pattern master and 3-1/2" BBB.

View it like jump shooting now, just prefer not to do it. I won't shoot over forty, forty five yards now. That's even too far I think at times. Why not HUNT them rather than being a killer?
Because I go out there and freeze my ass off to put birds on the strap. I am not going to sit there and let geese fly past me all day when I know damn well I can blast some of them out of the sky, and put meat in the pot.
Since you are obviously hunting for food rather than recreation like most of us here I personally will give you most of the birds off my strap if you will stay at home. I'll deliver them to your door, I drive through Lake County all the time, I'll even pick and clean them for you. No freezing your ass off, just a nice big strap. If you want to show them off in the parking lot we can meet at some undisclosed location and you can hang them off your mirror if you want. This is win-win I get to hunt with one less skyscraper around and you get the big show. I'll bet there are others here that would make similar offers.

Oh come on. There's gotta be at least one.
