Only shot one. That was a blue grouse in Colorado and that was for emergency food. Single shot 20 gauge and I was hungry. All I can say is juice the meat well, they get dry, and use something larger than #8 shot.

I have always used #7 1/2 in the chamber and backed that up with 2 high brass #6 in the tube. That way you have the reach for a 2nd shot or a multiple flush. As far as the shotgun, whatever you are comfortable with. Modified or Improved Cylinder choke. I shoot a Mossberg 500 pump
