Good question!
Dennis wants to shoot geese this fall and as usual I've given no thought to the ammo he will need.
I think I like the Kent Fasteel #2 idea.(60yds?) Thats good shootin!
He is also using the Rem youth model 20ga.
Thanks guys!:cool:

Well, I also like the 3" 20 ga #2's through IC or mod chokes.....but really try to do most of my shooting at 20 to 30 yards on the first shot. Not that you can't kill 'em sometimes at 40+, but the odds on a clean kill go down pretty rapidly beyond 35-40 with any gauge/load (at least when you shoot like I do). Plus, it is so much fun to get them completely committed (or to get your butt kicked in the process of trying! :NW:)

I like the Kent #1's because they work great for geese in the field and ducks in the marsh. Sometimes I will use a #4 when going for the teal or pheasants, but the primary load for me is the 3 inch Kent #1's

I like the look of the 3.5 inch Kent fast steel BBs that fly 1625fps.
:hest: The faster they fly the less I have to lead them. Which helps me alot :Rich:

I gotta Browning Gold 3" with a PM choke.

Geese i use Winchester Supremes 1 1/4 oz BB's at 1450 fps
Big ducks or late season birds i go with Supreme 1 1/4 oz. 2's at 1450
Little ducks or early season i go with the Supreme 1 1/4 oz. 4's at 1450

they all pattern very well out of the PM.

Patterns look like this (5 mph crosswind) n its with a 22" circle because i couldnt find big enough pattern paper lol:

BB's: 80/90 BB's at 25yds in 22" circle
32/90 BB's at 25yds in 10" circle
81/90 BB's at 35yds in 22" circle
23/90 BB's at 35yds in 10" circle
51/90 BB's at 45yds in 22" circle
15/90 BB's at 45yds in 10" circle

2's: 136/156 bb's at 25yds in 22" circle (only had 2 of these lol)
59/156 bb's at 25yds in 10" circle
83/156 bb's at 45yds in 22" circle
14/156 bb's at 45yds in 10" circle

4's: 224/239 bb's at 25yds in 22" circle
108/239 bb's at 25yds in 10" circle
198/239 bb's at 35yds in 22" circle
54/239 bb's at 35yds in 10" circle
89/239 bb's at 45yds in 22" circle
17/239 bb's at 45yds in 10" circle

They all patterned pretty well from what i can see what do you guys think about them? I dont shoot the 4's past 35 yds anyways so I dont mind the small numbers there, the 2's have enough power still at 45 to kill a mallard cleanly and none of these patterns had any noticeable holes in them what so ever.....I LOVE THAT PM choke!!!! only 9 days 11 hours and 16 min till i finally get to try it on some big central iowa honkers!!

They would usualy start at 20 and by the time I got on them they'd be at 50:NW: Or when your 9 you always want to shoot that third shot :NW:
