I'm a relatively new reloader for shotgun, although I have been reloading for a long time for rifle. So I am not all that familiar with the different quality of components. I like the Nice Shot Duck and Goose loads available in the store (2 3/4", 1 3/8 oz. shot, etc...) and would like to just recreate them as best I can.

I saw Randy's post on all the different 12ga loads for Nice Shot- can someone (hopefully Nice Shot itself) recommend a particular loading and components (hulls, wad, powder, primer, etc..) that would come closest to recreating the duck and goose loads available in the store? At least it'll give me somewhere to start and I can branch out from there.

Thanks! And thanks for putting my Browning A-5 and Superposed back into action- I got by with Kent Matrix, but I was almost afraid to pull the trigger @ nearly $4 a pop... :-)

I'll jump in.

For ducks, I've found an ounce of #5 nice shot to be more than adequate. I use Rem STS hull, Win 209, CB 1100-12, 25.5gr 7625.

For incidental geese, I've never lost a bird that I hit with #5. When I target them, I generally go with 1-1/8oz of #2 or #4. I use Rem STS hull, Win 209, 30.5gr Longshot, R12L wad.

Good luck, Rob.
