Goose Hunt Need T-Shot

Postby tstrong » Thu Nov 17, 2005 10:46 pm

The guide told me get the largest T-Shot I could find. 3-1/2" - 1-1/2oz - T is the best I could find - Ultra Shok by Federal? Any other suggestions.

Remmington Nitro Mag or Dead Coyote are good ones. But why T shot with a guide? You should be banging them in close with a guide and only need B or BB if that, hell maybe even only 1s or 2s.

:withstupid: on last 2 sentences

And T, TT shot is much harder on chokes too, BBB is the coarsest pellet size most gun manufactures are recommending now.

High Velocity is best, 1450fps or better for good penetration. Velocity is preferred over ounces of load, meaning go with lighter load and higher velocity :thumbsup:

Just going by what he told me. I have the BB & BBB, I saw the Dead Cyote loads. They look evil.

If the guide is worth a crap, you should be shooting the birds at 30 yds or less, so no need for T shot which is a pass shooting load. I suggest you get some refferences on this so called "guide" as it seems a bit fishy to me him telling you to get T shot.

Like everyone said above, 1s and 2s will smack em dead at 30 yards, and the guide should be able to put them in your face.

holy smokes, T shot for goose?? why?? Heck you can get away w/ 3" # 4's if they're locked up right next to your dekes. If you're going w/ a guide and he says you need T shot, I'd say heck w/ it and just get some BB hevi shot or high quality steel.

I agree. Biggest you should use is maybe BBB. T's are awful tough on your barrell. Early in the season like this I would think the smaller shot size would be more than adequate.
