Question T Shot?

I'm all about it for the Specks, I've used everything and am pretty hooked on the T especially for the long shot... Tons of variables here, but it works for me extremely well.

The point of this post is to see what y'all think, let's get the 2 cents flowin'.

3.5 BB or #2s is what I shoot. Hardly even see T available at places I buy shells.

I shoot 3 #3 and I killed a speck opening day. Second try didn't knock a feather. And yesterday I missed another opp at 40yds I'd think but have been smacking ducks when it counts. I'm thinking of starting to shoot 3 1/2 #2

I'd rather shoot this than T shot. I been shooting 3 inch 4s but started shooting 3 1/2 3s. That's a bad shell. If you can't kill em with that, probably shouldn't take the shot

I agree, if you can't kill them with #4s you probably be shooting.

Duck hunting I shoot 2 3/4" number 6s. For geese I will shoot 3" number 4 or 2s. The trick is calling.

that was with #6's and a modified choke that morning and i hit that sucker you heard it when it hit just not enough power to knock it down. Not gonna lie that shot on that grey was nice, but i think it might of had a heart attack and died not from the shot. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Guys From 8,000 Of Deep Blu..Its 1-2 ft seas out here... I hunt geese mostly and I shot them all..

If anyone likes to waterfowl hunt fo t toa website called Nodak outdoors.. It's the largest waterfowl hunting website I know of..

Most of the guides in the Dakota's use this site.. I came across a custom choke maker.. Its called DRAKE KILLER..

Its custom made for UR guns barrel diameter. I had one made.. I'm shooting 3 1/2 BB @ geese 60-70 yds and killing them STONE DEAD...

The maker of this choke also patterns the best loads for this custom choke and will send U a list of size shells and make to get the best performance out of them..

I shoot Fiocchi when I can.. No need to shoot Black Cloud, Hyper-sonic etc.

Fiocchi has a waterfowl shell called Golden waterfowl, and golden goose.. They are hard to find.. But can be found on the internet..

3 1/2 #1 are also great for geese. I shot 3" #3 for large ducks and 3' # 6 for small duck or first light shooting..

JMHO..
