I use my 870 express magnum.  3" Winchester, BB steel for geese, #2 steel for ducks.  I use the same gun for turkey, just change the choke tube, and switch to turkey loads.  3", 2 oz load of copper plated #4's.  I don't even remove the magazine plug.

Winchester SX3 3" Hevy Metal #2's for ducks I don't see spending the extra $ for the 3 1/2" for ducks

If I'm only hunting geese I break out the Remington SP-10 and shoot 3 1/2" BB's that way I can reach out and touch the geese after the first few shots have been fired. The geese turn into burnger if they are close though

what kind of gun do you use
« Reply #9 on: February 13, 2012, 08:58:59 PM »
Benelli nova is the gun. 3" #3's or 4's for duck....usually Remington. I'll spend $14-$16 a box but can't see spending $30 for the expensive ones the guys on tv push. The mid grade ones work for me just fine.
I dont get to goose hunt much but would use 3-12" BB for that.
