Copper plated #7 1/2 in 20 gauge.
Copper plated # 6 in 12 gauge.
Nickle plated # 7 1/2 in the 20 gauge flintlock

Those give the best patterns in my guns and plenty of penetration at the distances I will shoot.

I use #5 shot in both 20 ga. and 12 ga. conventional shotguns. In a flintlock 20 ga. I use No. 5 as well. I am in a rut.

The flintlock I use requires birds to be within 25 yards and I get pretty good pattern density with #5 shot
