Smooth bore .22


The "Rat Shot" shells that are available for pest control, scatter so bad through a rifled barrel, that your effective pattern isn't much further than 10 or 12 ft.
I was wondering if a smooth bore .22 rifle would tend to hold a good pattern any further. Have any of you guys had any experience with one?
Thinking about a Tin roof about 25 ft high and sparrows that crap all over my building.
Yes a smooth bore is the way to go, I've been looking for one myself.
If I don't find one I have an old rifle I may make one out of it.
Best Regards
Bob Hunter
