Maybe they are. Meaning which species are you hunting?
They are good for smaller ducks like Woodies, teal, etc..
#3 or #2 shot is better for the bigger ducks.
And you better go for a head shot on geese with those #4s, as I usually use BB and BBB (Snows, lessor Canada) or T (giant Cannadas) for body shots. Granted if a goose flys by at 20 yds--you can kill it with a body shot, but at 40 yds--nope, you'll just injury it as there is not suficient velocity to kill it with a body shot of #4s.

All the above are in High Velocity, meaning over 1450 fps. Speed kills, simple as that.
