Reminton Hyper 3 1/2 in loads

Is there a better shell than 3 1/2 inch 12 gauge #4 @ 1700 fps for long range dove shooting?

Can't ever tell if these kind of threads are a joke or not. 3 1/2 on dove? For real?

Do you carry a pistol to shoot at snakes too?

I think 00buck shot with 3-1/2 shell combination would work perfect for those pesky zombie doves.
