With out breaking the bank....just be sure to get High Velocity (1500fps+) steel shot. They are lethal on anything within 40 yds. #3 shot for smaller ducks and #2 shot for larger ducks and BB for small/med geese with BBB for large geese will be deadly on them.
Have to agree with Pullman here, the Kent Fast steel cant be beat! At $9.00 a box for 3" 1550s no one comes close. Some believe they need Hevi shot to justify their sky busting when all they need is some skill with the call and the gun.
This is not directed at ANY ONE!!!! just stating my opinion!
IMHO the best all-around load for the money is ANY 1500fps steel load in #2. You can shoot geese, puddlers, divers and just about anything that flys will go down with that load. 3 1/2" if you can take the pain.
I do go up to BB or BBB or T shot when I'm hunting geese exclusively, but an "all-purpose" load for me is #2
