    Cartridges for geese

    Hi guys, I am having difficulty finding a supply of Gamebore mammoth 50gram ( no3 lead) 3 inch magnum cartridges in time for a forth coming trip to Scotland, my normal shop can only get the same cartridge in BB's in time, I am able to get Fiocchi 3 inch magnum no3 in 50 gram for around the same price, has anyone had any experience of these in comparison to the gamebores, any other recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    many thanks.

    I have used all the cartridges listed above, and they all work just fine, buy a load of the cheapest and go kill some geese

    I've just picked up the fiocchi's so will give them a try... Obviously if my kill rate is poor, it will be down to the cartridges

    Whatever you do...make sure Muir doesn't have a shotgun anywhere near you. Muir+shotgun=random hunks of lead/steel being sprayed, somewhere, generally, in one cardinal direction (think North or South, East or West).

    (Sorry Muir, I couldn't resist )
