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...

I shot the new Remington High Velocity Steel last weekend. I was IMPRESSED. 1700fps #2. It put the smack down. Its about $16 per box, not cheap, not expensive. I had two triples Sat. I haven't had a triple since I was probably 24 years old. Long shots folded them too. I also didn't change my choke from a skeet choke for shooting ducks at hunt tests too.
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checked by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."
Theodore Roosevelt 1899

Brother used Black Cloud 3" 2s on a widgeon in the snow last year and gut shot it. He was able to track the blood trail for 200yds in the farmers field we were in! They do a ton of damage! :mgun:
