    I second this one, love the #1's on snows simply deadly. I often lead with a 2 and finish second and third shot off with #1's

    Killer combo see

    I shot 2 3/4 1 1/16 oz Kent #1's in Canada and it grinds them up just fine in the decoys. Of course you could kill them with trap loads at 25 yards. I shoot 2 3/4 because they are cheaper, kill them just fine and have less recoil which is nice because it keeps the gun in tight on the shoulder with less muzzle jump. Making second and third shots more effective.

    The truth is that if you are a decent shot you can kill them with a 20 gauge and #2 shot if they are decoying well and its calm out.

    In high winds I shoot 3" 1 1/4 oz BB's because you don't get the wind drift as badly. This is more important on 50 - 65 yard birds when they are not finishing or flaring hard. You would be suprised how far your shot drifts in a 25 mph cross wind at 50 yards.
