try kent faststeel.its good and its cheaper than the rest i also shoot a 500 moss.try an improved /mod choke tube and 2's for ducks bb's for geese.good luck maybe after bow season ill try for ducks my decoys are getting real dusty

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Depends!

I like 2 shot for over decoys, but i usually use a BB or BBB for my last shot it is not very often you get a third shot but usually if you do they are a little ways away, and i like the knock down power of the BB and BBB. If you are getting the birds to land close to you, stick with 2's, but if they don't seem to be landing as close as you would like switch to BB or BBB. Kent faststeel is the best shotshell I have used in the past, and is worth the inexpensive price. But if you want some real awesome results duck or goose hunting try that new black cloud shot shell it is a real duck and goose buster.

Remington Hevi-Shot #4 will do the job and without any wounded ducks down here in Arkansas there is a lot more ducks that are wounded than are killed.
