Not forgetting ITM

Postby EnglishGun » Thu Jun 15, 2006 7:37 am

ITM doesn't seem as popular over this side of the pond as it once was. Howabout over there?
Kent load their own 2 3/4" loads for the uk market but we can now get the US 3" 1.5oz load and the 3.5" 2oz load. Anyone used these for geese and what did you think? Howabout shot sizes, 3's or 1's

If you are going to use a 2 oz loads, go with BB's !!

Get all the energy you can get !!

Why play around with the small pellets good for only 60 to 65 yards ??

Some even like # T's !!

I like BB's for the full pattern !!

Cheers Sage but I'm talking about tungsten matrix. It's only available in #1's and #3's. The 3's are almost the size and weight of our UK 1's back in the days of lead. They were good for at least 65yards given a large enough load. Without being branded as a sky buster has anyone shot tungsten matrix 3's at snows and at what range please?

Use 1's for geese, 3's for big ducks and the rest is up to the shooter.

I'm yet to shoot the #1s, ,but the 3's hit hard on big ducks. I would have no problem with 3s for geese decoying. can't beat the 5s for ducks. My new favorite load.
Have you ever woke up one day and said. Damn when does the season start.
