2 3/4" shells with #4, #5, or #6 shot will do just fine. #4 shot will leave fewer pellets in the meat and they're easier to find, and #6 will leave more pellets in the meat and harder to find.

Higbrass 2 3/4 1 1/4 oz 7.5s or the same load of #6s.Dont go out there and wound them all with the little cheap skeet loads of lowbrass 8s.I know some guys knock the fire out of them with those shells but the ones they dont tell you about are what I am worried about.
