I like to shoot 3", #2 or BB's for ducks.  I have been shooting some #4 Blackcloud that has performed very well.

Winchester X-pert  2 #4 and #2 for ducks.  Cheap and they pack a punch, 1550fps.

The last few days I have been shooting the Blackcloud, 3", #4's.  It has been performing very well.  Every bird has been stone dead.  I think my gun is liking the load.
Cut em!

Kent Fasteel for me, 3in #1, #2. I used to shoot 3.5inch, found that all I was doing was killing my shoulder and paying too much money. 3inch #1's killed the snows and ducks just as dead as the 3.5inch shells, but without all the pain.

I just buy the cheapest and throw the shells at the ducks since I can't hit chit with the shotgun!

kent fasteel 3" 1 1/8 oz 2's and 3's
or in the winchester x-pert high velocity   both are awesome! the thing about them is they are 1550 fps rather than an 1 1/4 oz load which is normally 1440-1460 fps...
