Forget the X-pert's there junk!!! I like the Remington's never tried Kent heard alot of good thing,s about them though. I took apart some X-pert shell's lot's of flat spotted shot, different sized stuff low quality IMO
Remington nitros are AWESOME! 3 or 3 1/2 #2(geese) or #4(duck). They are the most expensive of the 3 kinds but the best. Kent fast-steels are great for the price. Love um. winchester x-perts are alright but i would take the other 2 over them.
You need to buy a box of each and pattern your gun first. All guns shoot differently, even the same guns that look identical. I have seen two 870s bought at the same time pattern better with different loads. My gun patterns best with none of the shells you mentioned. I shoot Federal Ultrashoks 3" 4s. Expert aren't good shells in general.
Buy a box of each and give them a try.
P.S. 3" Winchester Drylok BBBs are awesome outta my gun too.
Remember, speed does kill, but it don't if their is a hole in your pattern big enough for the ducks and geese to squeak through. I patterned my gun and my shots per duck and shot per goose went way up.
