the idea being the small / more numerous shot is more likely to strike something vital. so if your only getting a 2 inch spread that is out the window and you have lost the precision of a well aimed shot.
But they are also far less likely to penetrate and reach the vitals. Birdshot out of that gun would have a hard time penetrating skin past 15 yards, which means that even inside of 7 yards if it does penetrate skin, getting to the vitals will be a struggle.
