WHATS THE BEST GAUGE FOR PARTRIDGE(RUFFED GROUSE)

The 20 is all I've ever used over the years. They're lighter and therefore faster to throw up. I have a Charles Daly side x side with IC and Mod chokes and even though my wing shooting aint the best in the world at times, I find just one or two pieces of No 6 will knock them down when hit at close range.

WHATS THE BEST GAUGE FOR PARTRIDGE(RUFFED GROUSE)

I have an old bolt action, J.C. Higgins 16 gauge I really like, but my 12 gauge mossberg is my workhorse. you can by small enough rounds to equal a smaller gauge and you can move up when necessary. Rounds are cheap and widely available.
