Being as the last time I used a shotgun to hunt duck was back before lead shot was outlawed I'm sort of stumped and need the help of some forum members.
Back in the "good ol' days" I seem to recall a 2 3/4" 12 Guage being just fine. Nowdays all I see are 3" and 3 1/2" 12 Guages, and Lord help me on ammo. I realize that some folks favor moving to a larger pellet when using steel shot, but how large is large enough? #2 for ducks?
When I went to my "Big Boy Toy Store" today, with the intention of buying a couple of boxes of duck hunting specific ammunition I was sort of dumbfounded. That's a condition I find myself in frequently it seems, and now am asking for help, or at least assurance that I bought the right ammo.
I picked up two boxes of steel 12 Guage 3" #2 shot. Did I make the right choice?
