    Try Federal 1 3/8 oz BB! They come out at 1550fps and its in a blue box. i have witness them to be deadly on late season honkers out to 70 yards out of a patternmaster! I will often use Federal 1 1/2 oz BBB for my thrid shot. Again deadly at extreme ranges!

    Another shell to look at is Winchester 1 1/4 oz BB at 1625fps.. this is my early season third shell following 3 1/2" #2s...sometime even shoot 1 1/8 4s at honkers in early season.

    Federal Blackcloud 2s, BB, and BBB are a great load... but not out of a ported patternmaster.... it will ruin your tube quickly!!! unless you invest in the unported tube..

    something to think about

    My SBE's shoot Rem or Fed BBs on the river where shots tend to be rather close and usually Ts in the fields as these shots can be a little longer. All are steel through modified tube.

    It's only pass shotting.

    If you are pass shooting and your range is a little longer, 50-60 yards, I would use nothing smaller than BB. However, if you can decoy the birds and they are landing at your feet go with #2. Out of my Benelli, I will use Federal Black Cloud 3.5in BB for pass shooting and Winchester Supreme HV #2 when I am hunting over decoys. I have found that these two loads pattern the best out of my Briley IM choke for their respected situations.

    You asked for the best well the best is very expensive. It's without a doubt high-density shot loads in #2 or BB kills like lightning. There are several brands WW, Federal and Remington com to mind. Otherwise Kent fasteel in BB or BBB is good. My Benelli SBE has a Patternmaster choke tube on it for waterfowl.

    It depends on the range, if using steel I would go with #2 or BB if you think your shots are going to be 60 to 70 yards or if you are shooting snows get a box of Kent Matrix in a 2oz load of #3s or #1s. Stuff is great use with a full or improved modified the honkers wont know what hit them. Good luck

    Quite a few of the small, local farm ponds in Oklahoma have little islands of lost AR's forming in them! LOL!

    Tucker Carlson did a good article on just what is the AR-15. Included time with Hitchcicl-45 at his range. Can be seen on FoxNation.com
