Re: Bird Shot
birdshot/ratshot is just barely sufficient to do the job INSIDE A BARN...outdoors, at over 7-8 paces, forget it..
The Intent was so that farmers could clear their barns/outhouses/sheds of nuisance critters...
without going thru the walls/roof and causing leaks...
But for crawling up in an attic and blasting out the squirrels/other critters, PERFECT!!
Close enough range that it works!!
But in that vein...I prefer .22WMR shotshells to .22lr shotshells...way more effective, but still without major penetration thru plywood.
A gun should be a tool in the hands of a deadly weapon, not a deadly weapon in the hands of a tool.
