New squirrel gun any suggestions?

Postby Akkar » Tue Aug 26, 2014 3:18 pm

I need a new squirrel gun, and I only hunt squirrels with shotguns since its REALLY cheap to hunt them with and its alot easier to hit them in thier enviroments any suggestions... No .410s I had to many bush tails carry a full load from a .410

My dad uses a 20 ga due to retna degeneration. Use #6 shot, heavy field (high brass) and penetration want be a problem. I've seen many time where bird loads just bounce off. I use a 22 most of the time, rifle or pistol. I reload all the shells my dad uses, have been for decades.

A 410 will work just fine with the right load, just need to be a little more precise with your shot.

Ive shot them with a 410 where they are 15-20 feet away and flat against the tree.. and they ran off. I don't think its a bad round at all I just had bad experiences with it.I have a 20 gauge Right now but I am kinda disapointed with the pattern and spread, It seems more of a home defense shotgun than a hunting gun
