Probably the best thread ever on the subject. From shotgunworld.com: http://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/view...p?f=7&t=109958
Small sized birdshot such as this #4 heavy dove load is a poor choice for deployment with a tactical shotgun. Wounds inflicted from birdshot tend to be gruesome yet shallow as they lack the penetration required to reach vital cardiovascular or central nervous system structures.
