* Here’s a consideration for you goose hunters. 72 size BB steel shot weigh one ounce. Therefore 1 1/8 ounces contain 81 size BB shot, for which some 12-gauge 3-inch magnum shells advertise a muzzle velocity of 1550 feet per second. Okay, another 3-inch mag offers 1 1/4 ounces of BB’s at a velocity of 1350 fps – something close to that, anyway. So the issue is, do you think that nine more pellets are worth the loss of perhaps 200 fps – and the associated loss of pellet-energy?

It’s your choice, but think about it.



* Bring plenty of bullets when you go teal hunting!

* Bring plenty of patience when you go specklebelly hunting!
