Must have deep pockets bow-man. Been hunting ducks for almost 15 years and still shooting 3 inch kent fast steel. Can knonk the stuffing out of the with the best of them. Only time I have ever noticed a diff with premium shot is a few LONG SKY BUSTIN SHOTS. Not worth it to me, as I can buy almost 2 boxes for the price of one. Oh yeah #2 for ducks and #BB for Geese.I use Federal Premium Black Cloud 3" Magnums.
Expensive, but very effective.
3 early 2 for sea ducks and later in the seasonSo what shot size do you guys use?
I prefer not to shoot my decoysI voted but to be funny....
I use decoys for decoying ducks and #2 for shooting them
Winchester xperts or remington nitro mags, they both pattern very good out of my gun, ive tried a lot of the "premium" ammo and find a lot of it no better or worse tha xperts but that may be just my gun, my old 870 on the other hand patterns federal speedshocks very well but winchesters are usless, I do however love the federal black cloud but the prblm is my bank account has different feelings for it, but it does work...very well#2's, and never been real particular about the brand, anybody got a favorite brand? why?
For me there are two factors that determine what I buy. #1 is a cost/value analysis and #2 is how clean the shell burns. I have had good luck with Remington Nitro Steel #2's, but the dirtiest shells I have ever fired through a shotgun were the Federal Speed Shok shells. Unless I had two bad boxes, which is possible of course.#2's, and never been real particular about the brand, anybody got a favorite brand? why?
I found the same thing, I stay away from federal speedshoks, they were always really dirty, always a lot of unburnt powder in the chamber and barrel, and they pattern like crap through my gun(although very well out of my old rem 870) and they were the only shells that would jam in my dad's Ithica semi, prbly due to all the crap that comes out of them,the black cloud seems to be alright, still a bit dirty but the patterns are deadly.... but the dirtiest shells I have ever fired through a shotgun were the Federal Speed Shok shells.
