WVU, I like 9s or 9-1/2s duplexed with steel - and 9s the best size for turkey out of a 20 ga, IMO. So 9s have my vote if you're looking for a size to duplex with steel for ducks and for turkey.

For geese, I like the shot bigger. But a buddy of mine folded a big Canada a couple weeks ago with 9s out of a slower 28 ga load - going away, and picked him up 61 steps out.

I am more of a fan of 9s than 9.5s. Just personal preference last year the 9s were great and I used 9.5s where ei knew it would be a wood book and or teal.

Roll with it. If you stay above 55 the wheel wont fall off.

If I were going to duplex with something like #2 or #3 steel, I'd duplex 9-1/2s....

Yep, assuming the lethality is there, #9.5 TSS is about the same as #B steel, way out to 65 yds or so with 1.5" gel... I have been assuming 9.5 TSS pretty much for all my calculations (it used to be the smallest avail). Silly reason also, but each pellet weighs about 1 gr, makes it easy to calculate on the fly how substitutions affect pellet counts. Remove 1/8oz or 55gr of steel, you get 54 pellets of TSS #9.5 back ;)

However that's all from calculations-- no field results between 9 or 9.5s like Fish is saying. I'm relying on Hal and Fish and Jonboat and toasty for field results really...

No. TSS 8 duplexed with BB steel in a 1.25 oz load is my heaviest. You could duplex the TSS 7 under BB. I use Daisy or Crosman BB's. It's pretty easy to obtain.

You have to have a plan for what the shell is supposed to do...

I think you're making a combo duck/goose load. I did a bunch of numbers for you. Here's my writeup on it, with all the calculations on ranges, pellet counts, etc.

Just updated it with #7 TSS, since BPI is selling that and some folks may want the bigger pellets. ;)
