alright now my question is what shells should i use for ducks and geese? the last two times i've been out i used 2 boxes of 12 ga, 3 in., 1550 fps, 1 1/8 oz, 2 shot and the brand is remington sportsman, it cost $11.50 per box at sportsmans warehouse and have only got one mallard. so should i go with a different brand and shot and weight or a different choke?
any ideas?

Wow... those guys are good.... pretty much saying lines right out of a couple "better shooting" books I've read. I'd guess they know their business. My only other info I'd put in here would be a +1 to try Kent out of your shotgun. It patterns well out of my 870 and I shoot a completely stock setup. Mod choke, 28 inch barrel, Kent 3 inch #2s. Good luck man...hope you get the shot figured out.... two boxes a pop gets awful spendy in a hurry. I was kinda torqued because I blew through eight shots (even trying to be careful) out at the lake the other day and came home with no birds for those shots.... if I spent two boxes, I'd be having a heart attack. :lol:
