Default 20 gauge for teal?

I plan on trying my 20 gauge double this September on teal. Any recommendations on ammo? I've pattern some federal #2 steel but big holes in pattern at 40 yards. I'm thinking #5 or #4 steel? If anyone has a reliable duck killing load please let me know. Thanks.

I have been using a 20ga Benelli Montefeltro for the last few seasons on Teal, Dove and sometimes Big Ducks.

On the September Teal I buy a case of Winchester Steel #7 Shot. Works great, you would be surprised as how well it does on Big Ducks too.

All I found were low brass #7 steel. But I think I found the load I'm going to use. The 3" blindside #5 shot a 72% pattern at 30 yards inside a 30" circle with a flush mount skeet choke tube. That should work on any duck out to 35 yards, I hope.
