John Duck wrote:#4 is used by many Far North guides for geese, especially around Hudson Bay. They claim it slips in under the feathers and does not bounce off like larger shot and gives more head and neck wounds that usually result in quick kills. In a 1 1/4 ounce typical load, 4 has 100 more pellets than 2, now that is something to ponder.
I made a HUGE mistake about 2 or 3 years ago. As stated, the HD has been discontinued. At the time, Gander Mountain was clearing out 12 gauge #4s for about a buck a shell. It was originally sold at 15.00 box, so quite the discount.
I should have backed up the cart, and bought their inventory. Instead, I bought 30 rounds. I used a few rounds last year, on closing weekend, and it absolutely stoned the Mallards I shot. I am kind of stingy now with using them...
BTW, I also have used that Tungsten Iron in the past, and wasn't all that impressed.
