    wash thy mouth out.......SOME of us still enjoy a good single barrel hunt LOL....my older brother has my bakail because folks dont like to hunt with me when I have it..I DONT miss with it....amazing what a couple of thousand rounds through same shotgun will do to your shot to kill ratio.

    gamebore 20 gauge 30 gram leads loads will handle everything from ducks to pheasants to geese or would if you could still use them over water.. i used winchester aa loads for quail in 9.s and any 7,s seemed ok out of my 870.s
    i shot a lot of decoying geese with 30gram 3.s/4,s with 32 gram fiochhi 2,s as loads 4 and 5 in the mag.
    3 inch 20 gauge lead is pretty much over kill
    if you can get them put a box of fiocchi 32 gram loads thru then try your trap loads
    turks are finicky with the light stuff
    .the two geese i killed with 3 inch federal blackcloud steel 2,s [the largest available shoot size]were not instant.
    one i had to chase the tho hit a a quartering angle at about 30 metres the 2nd hit right above my melon in a full frontal wing spread pose at about the same distance traveled 50 metres and dropped dead.
    surprising givin the helluva thump when i tagged it.
    in homage to the old poms tale of pattern over shot size steel trap loads could be handy on known distance birds
