Any recommendation for shot size on a driven bird pheasant hunt?

Thinking lead #6 shot, similiar to pass shooting ducks.
The IQ and the life expectancy of the average American recently passed each other in opposite directions.

Big smileThe Last Castle hunt I was on I used #5 tungsten .RIGHT!


I'll bet #6 or #5  1 3/8  load and improved choke would kill them very nicely.Smile

I always used #6 lead when I had my bird dogs. I never had a problem with it. 
I have always considered myself to be quite the bullshitter, But ocasionally it is nice to sit back and listen to a true professional......So, Carry on.
