Specialty ammunition from S&B

Flipping through the latest Natchess catalog I find that Sellier and Bellot are now making for the 12 ga:

Bird bombs (detonate 75 yards away)


12 ga shells with either
-one rubber ball
-two rubber balls
-rubber buckshot (15 balls)

Since when did they move into this arena? What's next, flechettes? Dragon's breath? (Although I must admit I am tempted to pick up some quality made specialty ammunition, not that I really know why I would need it)

BTW, does anyone know exactly how the bird bombs are detonated?

Use Dragon's Breath for your bird problem and you can not only get rid of the pesky birds, but roast them for dinner in the process.

Never fire flechettes up into the air at birds.

Note: Bird bombs don't blow up birds. Bummer, eh?
