    this is probably not 5 oclock news worthy, but I just (in a round about way) inherited some ammo. while most is fairly traditional I got some 22LR that is bird shot. It's basically a 22 shell that appears crimped at the tip that contains shot.

    I suspect most of you may know about it. I had no idea. very cool.

    Snake shot...At least that's what we always called/used it for when I was a kid.

    Don't try and kill a raccoon with it. It only pisses them off. Good medicine for rats, if you get them to hold still long enough.

    yup that's the stuff. I guess if they make slugs for a 12 gauge shot for a 22 isn't out of the question.

    When I was a Boy Scout we had the Remington Smoothbore .22's for shooting clays at a summer camp. If I remember correctly the clay thrower was very slow and close to allow us to have a chance at hitting them.
