I patterned 2 3/4" #4 hevi-shot 12 gauge 1 1/4 ounce load at 30 and 50 yards with a Cabela's MOD hevi-shot choke. I think 50 yards in the max lethal range for that load. At 30 yards the pattern was very even and and around 95%. At 50 yards the pattern was a little low, but that could of just been me and it was around 80%. I think at 20 yards and under a goose will be a little chewed up, but at least I can shoot out to 50 yards.
