Hevy shot sure takes em down hard, but also gives a false sense of confidence in to long of shots. I use hevishot in either B's or 2's, but still limit passing shot to 40-45 yards to keep the money well spent (dead goose) :wink:
I have a gun that will shoot a 3.5 in shell. They are way overrated. I have killed tons of geese with cheap 2 3/4 in shells in BB. I don't take shots past about 30 yards, and they kill geese dead. Kent Faststeel is the stuff. I shot a lot of PMC 2 3/4 2s and BBs when the were on sale for $6-7 a box. Just pick shots carefully. The fun is in gettin em close, not letting loose on them at 45 yards.
Have a gun that will shoot everthing. Mainly stick to 3 bb. Generaly fast loads 1450 and above. Will bring them down easily out to 40 yards. Latter in the season maybe back up with a BBB or T for the third shot.
With the amount of shooting we do in our area hevi shot is way out of the question. what i find myself shooting is Kent Fasteel in either 3"BB or
2 3/4 #1, both of them will kill em dead, especially if you get one of them wad wizards, that is the deal
