I pick and clean the smaller ducks like this (big mallards and geese I usually fillet out the breasts)- soak overnight in cold water with white vinegar and a little salt in a plastic or non-metallic bowl in the ice box- drain, clean off any remaining feathers, blood, debris and wipe dry- then marinade for 24 hours in a covered dish in Balsamic vinegar-- when you are ready to cook- stuff the cavity with sliced apples (I like spies of McIntosh) and take the reserve Balsamic vinegar and mix in slowly brown sugar until it is just runny- NOT too thick- and close the neck cavity with the same thread you use for roasting a turkey-, then pour the sugared vinegar mixture into the cavity stuffed with the apple slices- then stitch up the "trapdoor" to keep everything inside, pepper the outer skin including the legs, place some thicj slices sweet onions on the breast and then criss-cross with bacon strips- double wrap tightly in Reynolds Wrap and cook for about 40 minutes on your grill- 20 minutes per side- let stand in foil for a few minutes before you unwrap to maintain the juices, slice and serve- I like redskin potatoes with these birds, buttered carrots, rolls and a nice Leibfraumilch slightly chilled- and of course, Parker house rolls!!

Good idea. I have yet to start reloading shot shells. I'm still paying for the gun.

Because I use only AA's for reloading, I differentiate loads by using adhesive stickers (the types used at garage sales) on the base of the shell, writing the shot size and powder on the label. You can also use diffferent colored labels for different loads

I reload all my spreaders, takes a little extra time, but well worth it. I have to use remington wads to get everything to fit right in the 16.
