What is your favorite duck, and goose loads

Postby duckdog » Mon Aug 07, 2006 9:57 pm

What is everyone going to be shooting this year at the feathered game?
I'm up in arms right now, I have always shot Remington Nitro Mags, but I started trying Kent Fasteel last year, and was really impressed with it on early season duck's. Did'nt care for it to much on geese.

Early season duck's I use 3" #4's
Late season duck's 3" #2's
Geese 3" BBB, or #2's, depends if I am on water, or in the corn field.
Any day in the outdoor's is better than at work
