    7/8 oz. #3 seems to work ok too. Oh yeah, shoot them in the face.:tu

    Before anybody says anything about this load, I'll let you know that we probably shot 300+ snow geese this fall. Averaged less than 2 shells per bird. We used a combination of reloads and factory Winchester HV xperts in #3 shot .

    90% of the birds were killed within 40 yds.

    I'm with you bang....3 or #4s if they're tight will do it and do it well.....thats all I shot in Canada,North Dakota, and in the mid west.....

    do'nt let the 7/8 oz in the 20 ga. fool you it whoops them



    I think all that really matters is that you hit the bird dead center
