To answer the OP about most versatile shot size: It's # 6. It will work for practically anything that fits the description of small game and also will work for shooting clays. It's not necessarily the best for everything but will work for everything.

My preferences for shot sizes for differing purposes:

Clays = 8
Doves = 8 or 7 1/2
Quail = 8 or 7 1/2
Grouse = 7 1/2
Pheasant = 6
Rabbit = 4 (just to keep pellets in meat to the minimum, not that hard to kill)
Squirrel = 4 (same reason as for rabbits)
Ducks = Steel 3
