From early season to late season snow hunts, T shot has put the hurt on geese. We do not shoot many cripples but have experienced a few heart shots that dropped birds out 200 yards or so. T shot penetrates the fatty late season geese wherever you hit it. If you use BB you better be hoping for a head shot.
