That depends mostly on which game you are playing. For sporting clays or 5 stand an assortment of all of those would be appropriate. For skeet most use 8.5-9's, for trap 7.5-8.5's. 7.5's are generally the largest shot allowed on Trap or skeet ranges (for safety reasons).

Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms [of government] those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.
Thomas Jefferson, 1778
"This started out as a documentary on gun violence in America, but the largest mass murder in our history was just committed -- without the use of a single gun! Not a single bullet fired! No bomb was set off, no missile was fired, no weapon (i.e., a device that was solely and specifically manufactured to kill humans) was used. A boxcutter! -- I can't stop thinking about this. A thousand gun control laws would not have prevented this massacre. What am I doing?"
