Default Paul Harrell #4 steel birdshot 12 gauge won't penetrate.

about 9:00 into video. Not thru the 'ribcage', let alone to the lungs. That surprised me...

Paul is a great shot, but you should not accept his "testing" as accurate nor realistic. Seriously, grapefruit?

Besides, he's using birdshot, steel birdshot at that

Can you imagine eating a bird where 1,000 pellets entered one side
Went through the guts, dragging pin feathers with the shot

The bird would be ruined

Bird shot is good on birds-

Steel shot might bounce back off of a fridge or stove.

Lead mushrooms and goes flat

Steel pellets would be a possible ricochet problem too

Any professions hunters use bird shot on lions or a wounded buffalo?

00 is there for a reason.
