I have a dadgummed sparrow that keeps irritating the blue birds and keeping them from occupying the blue bird house in my back yard. Anyone got any recommendations on a good load to bring down this beast? The shot will be from the deck 15 feet off the ground, at a range of about 45 feet. Hmmm... I wonder which rifle and load is up to the task??

155mm Howitzer definantly!

I thought I'd seen it all, until a 22WMR spun a bunny 2 1/4 times in the air!
