They don’t call them ribeye from the sky for nothing. Absolutely delicious.

Holy cow Bob you smoked them. I got to get some of that for my triple barrel even if i have to reload it.
Yes, the small dense shot defy the conventional wisdom of what is possible. It is hard to fathom until you see it with your own eyes.

Even though I knew from my testing what the Tungsten Super Shot was capable of, the results you see here was even more dramatic than I had imagined.
I've always preferred more pattern over bigger shot, as long as it has the energy to penetrate, and that takes it to extreme.
I showed it to a mate that shooting geese up north again, hit hit 6 and didn't drop a single one with #2 36gm steel yesterday, he almost cried, he wants shot like that as them high birds are hard to drop and that stuff just hammers them.
I'm soft and I don't care. :dance:

A few years ago I was hunting in the Alaska ranges where I saw the migration of the sandhill cranes. The guide called them rib eye of the sky. I thought he was joking. I had no idea that they were game birds and good eating.
They looked (I only saw them way up in the sky on their migration), to me, like the ibis we get here in the thousands near rubbish dumps (where they feed on scraps) Thence their derogatory names of bin chooks (chicken) or sky chooks. I told the guide that...now I know why he gave me a strange, well stranger than usual, look 😂😂.

Those birds were a long long way up 👍

The ones I was shooting here in Arizona nest on the tundra of Alaska north of the arctic circle.
