Because of Hevi-shot, I have regressed, meaning I now shoot a 20ga.(Citori) oever decoys for ducks(#6 and 71/2) and #4 for geese. I have never recovered a shot in a duck or goose, even on shots to 45yrds. If I need to shoot farther than 40yrds., maybe I need to be a better hunter. Anybody else feel this way? I don't handload Hevi-shot, although I do have a Lee Loader in 20ga. I wonder how difficult it is to reload this stuff?

A few years ago, we went to west Texas(Lubbock area) for a Crane hunt. We hunted over stuffers, coolest hunt I've ever been on. Anyway, I used #6 for first shot(head shot, maybe 10yrds.) and #4 for second shot. Clean kills to 35yrds. Hevishot is great! Anyway, does anybody reload the stuff. Maybe I could knock down on the cost a little.

I use Patternmaster chokes in one or sometimes both tubes. 25in. pattern at 40yrds. with 1.25oz. #4. But what about reloading this stuff? Thoughts? Helpful hints??
