Personally I would stick with the larger shot between #2’s and BB’s. But that’s just me. Good Luck...

I would go with the #2 shot...it's a good compromise...large enough to bring down geese provided you aren't sky bustin and it's not overkill on woodies and ringnecks. Probably about perfect for the mallards.

Good luck!

4's for the 20 gauge
2's for the 12 (ducks)
BBB's for geese

#2's with a modified choke, deadly combination for ducks and geese
