A South African on rec.guns asked about hunting geese with his 30-06!

Hi guys. Jacques here from South Africa. I use my 30-06 to hunt wild
birds especially Egyptian geese for research purposes.My problem is
that this is my only rifle and I need a load to minimize meat damage
seeing that I need to take samples of the organs of the birds

Suggestions included:

Chamber adapters

Light Loads

Sabots (see picture)

UPDATE: A continuation of the discussion is here.
