I am tempted to pick up a 12 gauge SxS and use it for hunting, which I usually do with a modern pump. I hunt birds, squirrels, rabbits and jackrabbits just about every weekend in season. I think squirrels and cottontails are no worry. Ducks work with bismuth shot? What kind of reasonable range can I expect with cylinder bore and something like a skychief load? Probably the longest shots and the toughest critters I would be chasing would be jackrabbits. Is a 40 yard shot with 6 shot or better realistic with some work at the patterning board?
