I was thinking about reloading some 12 ga shells with 1 1/8 oz steel shot for large ducks and geese.

I was just wondering if it would be ok for me to use regular steel airgun BB shot. It should be about the same size as BB lead or steel shot.

Just wondering if it would work ok, I have a pint container of about 6000 BBs that are not being used.

DO NOT use air rifle pellets!! They are much harder than the pellets used in non-toxic loads and can defeat the wads that protect your barrel from damage. Also, the pellets may not "flow" or reposition themselves as well and that could raise pressures to dangerous levels as they pass through the forcing cones and choke.
