    Anyone have an opinion about this stuff. I have a case of 3" #4's and I'm heading to MD this week. Any issues at all to be concerned about. I'm running it through a Vinci for puddle ducks.

    The only thing I would be concerned about is big wind, like over 15 mph.
    If you have strong wind you might want to grab a few boxes of #2's or 3's.
    Besides that, I wouldn't worry about the shells at all as long as you get the birds in close they will flat out kill any puddler out there.:yes:yes:yes

    I assume it fired OK threw the vinci..my buddies stoeger did not like the 3 inch. My sbe rips threw them. I use 3 inch for 30 yaRd and in areas...good shells I would give them 7/10 for steel

    Buy the #3's of the 1 -1/5 ounce by the case. Absolutely no complaints. Very good ammo at a great price.

    the Vinci cycles 1 1/8 oz loads, so I think this would cycle too.

    My 3" Vinci cycles them just fine. I would prefer the 3's, but that's a personal choice as opposed to how well they will function in the gun.

    I shot the #4 1/5 load in 11 to 15 mph wind, it worked very well.First time using it!

    I also really like the shells, and would also go with a larger shot size. 2's or 3's in that load for ducks would be my choice.

    I went with the 4's after talking it over with the guide. The reason being it was a descent compromise for woodies and teal.
