I like 3" and 2 3/4" much better. I dont use the 3.5s. Best factory load = Kent 3" 1 1/4oz #1s.

I have run the Federal Speed Shok 3.5" 1's for a long time. About the best load for the money out there imo.

In the federal ultrashok line that is one of my favorite loads.

Its a great load for combo hunting!

Dunns sporting goods has the speed-shok 1 1/2 on sale for $155 a case with free shipping.
Why do I shoot 3.5" for geese? Because they don't make a 4" yet!

I don't shoot 3.5 inch loads and don't find a need for any more than 1 1/4oz of shot. That said, friends of mine were using 2 3/4 inch 1 1/4 oz #1s for geese a few years ago. Their reasoning was that the guns they were suing at the time were chambered for 2 3/4 inch and rather than the normal Bs or BBs, they preferred to keep the pellet count up. These guys were good hunters and let their birds work, so they didn't loose many, if any cripples. On the down side, when one of them made the mistake of grabbing the wrong loads for duck, some of the birds he shot with the 1s were pretty much useless. Depending on how you hunt and the conditions, you might want to be careful with using them as a combination load.

Why is it that whenever anyone calls Ned on one of his posts, you come in to provide cover? Has he retained you as his guard dog? :no:

Go back and have a look at the three posts you cite. At least the other two had some relevance to the OP' question.

A few years back when shooting 3.5"s didn't bother me I was able to pick up 2 cases of ultra shok 1's. I used them on everything from teal to snows, mixed bag hunts.

Yes I love 1's.

What are you shooting them at? Geese? Divers? Mallards?

Seriously, you'll love the 1's... unless you are shooting small/medium ducks.

Biggest problem with 1's is getting them to pattern right, if your gun loves them they are deadly if doesn't try another shot size.
I've had better luck with 2's on ducks and B or BB on geese...but that's just my results.

It has been just the opposite for me. I have always had zero trouble getting ones to pattern. While #2s have been one of the toughest to pattern. However, I do recall fellow reloaders telling me that their particular gun/choke does not like #1s. I just havent seen this.

With 6+ years of shooting just 1's for everything , they are my favorite shot size here in the central valley and many trips
North of the US border . This season I've loaded the HG load of 2's with great results on big ducks , no crip's so far as I've
went with a LM choke on birds out past 45 yds , in a couple cases ! We'll see what these do when the Speck's come-in but ,
I'll have some 1's just in case !

IMO, Mr. Bergren's post closely resembled (referenced a preference for <3 1/2" cartridges) 10gaugeOkie & 300's posts.

Taken at face value, you're not wrong. The problem is that Ned's references were for loads that are considerably lighter than the 1.5oz loads the OP asked about. And while 10gaOkie and 3200man both talked about lighter loads, they weren't all that much lighter. Ned is entitled to his opinions, just like everyone else. In this case, he could have elaborated a little bit to make his point. Both 10ga and 3200 did that.

Frank,

RSI #88 is a 3", 1 1/8 oz. loading...1/8 ounce lighter than Chris' or 3200's suggestions & 3/8 oz. lighter than the OP's.
