    I'm going to pattern this stuff in the spring. I picked up a couple boxes of #2's. The spot I used it at I usually use target steel, in your face shooting so it wasn't a great place to test it. Cycles fine and knocked em dead.

    Going to be picking up a case or two especially at that price.

    Side note,

    Fiocchi works great, my favorite ammo. Price is right, hits hard and patterns better than high dollar rounds.

    First time I saw those Field and Stream shells I cracked open the box, curious to see who actually made them. Saw the green hull and fiocchi on the brass so I grabbed a couple of boxes.

    Do those come in 4's or 5's? Looks like they could be a pretty good goose load.

    I thought the 2's were a great goose load.

    Too bad they don't come in 5's. 4's would be OK, but I prefer 5's. I see they come in 4's.

    2's and BB. They both work great at decoying geese. 2's are primarily my go to round. If I feel like changing it up I'll use 4's and 5's for smaller ducks(teal, woodies, divers).

    I use 4's in my 20GA and 5's in my 12GA. That is for ducks. 2's for geese. I limit my shots to 35 yards, all is well.

    4 cases of Rio #2's were on my back porch today. Sure hope they pattern good.

    Wow 5’s?? I was getting crips with 3s so went back to 2s. It would be nice with more shot down range though.

    I shoot 4's with the 20GA. Those are Kent Fasteel at 1550. 7/8 ounce. Skeet choke.

    If I shoot the 12GA I shoot Sporting Ammo II. 5 shot, skeet choke at 1700. 1 1/8 ounce
