choke & load for ducks, super nova


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, new to the forum and to duck hunting. I went duck hunting last week for the first time, using M choke and winchester xpert hi-velocity #4s. Wood ducks were flyin fast, and maybe 35 yards out. I missed 6 birds. Hoping someone has some reccomendations or pattern pictures to share for the super nova. Thanks.

thats about 50%,i wouldnt go any further than 35 yards with it.it seems that this combo would be great over back peddling decoyed birds.where most shots are under 25 yards.how are your wingshooting skills?have you taken birds on the wing before?there are alot of variables here and it is hard to point at the problem.this load would seem fine for small ducks at close range,even up to 35 yards,large ducks i dont think it would be very effective.i am assuming that the 119 pellets are inside a 30" circle @ 35 yards.i believe if you can get the pattern on the front half of the bird you got him.
