BB by a long shot. When lead shot was legal, I used to shoot #2 for the first round and BB for the last two rounds in my goose gun. I knocked honkers down at 40 yards with the #2 and out to 120 yards with size BB shot. It has noticeably more lethal range and with a 3" 12 gauge, it has plenty of pattern for about anything you want.

I was wondering that myself. It might be because of the 120 yard comment. You can't do that any more with steel shot but when I was young (in the 50s and 60s)and before we knew the harmful effect of lead, I sure shot a lot of geese at that range. I certainly didn't think of it as unethical because I discovered, you either missed them knocked them down. One pellet or more of BB shot would bring them down hard, usually penetrating completely through. I loaded my own and with my shot cups, it was tough to fly a goose through a pattern of BBs from my long range loads. You can't do that with steel shot and shouldn't be trying 120 yard shots now days.

Sorry... meant to say, "missed them or knocked them down"... that is to say, I don't ever recall having a cripple with BBs.

at 120 yds, you would need to aim about 10 feet high [?] and the knuckleball ballistics would mean total inaccuracy, lead shot or not! so yes I think that is why you got the minuses
