Yellow,
Use a full choke and a turkey load. At 50 yards, the turkey loads just smoke them.

I have seen it. I don't go much bigger than BBB cause in my experience Ts and Fs cripple too many geese. Not enough pellets to get a good clean pattern and kill IMO.

I like to use T shot in the fields as my third shot. I usually do BB or BBB then follow it up with Tshot. I have better luck losing less birds with it.

I have only seen Fs once. My cousin had some of it. Tried it on snow geese. Wasn't real impressed. I might buy a box of Hevi-shot for late season. Hevi shot BBB would be some killn $hit.

Yeah,

I need to just buck up and buy some heavyshot for geese.... It would probably be cheaper in the longrun. no more followup shots would be nice. I am also going to try a different choke from carlson.
