    Maybe I should have been clear - are we all talking Snow Geese?

    BBB's?? Dang, I reserve those for weary late season fat and down full Canadas myself. Hmmm....

    Yep, we hunt snows, specks and small canadas. #1 are ok, I have killed lots of birds with them. 3" BB and BBB are what I have used for years and they work great once you get the right choke/load combo. I have shot lots of ducks with them in the goose spread as well. Down here you will find most goose hunters shoot BB and BBB steel or Hevi #2. Those are the norm.
