    I love duck hunting best of all but don't care for steel shot. The bismuth or other heavy shot that better mimics the density of lead shot serves much better. I've rued the day that lead shot was banned for waterfowling, having experienced many happy years of lead shot performance. There is a difference in effectiveness.

    Kent 3" #3's have always done well for me. IC for ducks over decoys, LM for lesser Canada geese in the decoys.

    Good point Crews and welcome to the Forum! More open chokes are definitely sensible for most hunting applications.
