        Jump shooting I would say 12 gauge with #2 lead shot. I used them myself years ago walking up fox.

            which will go farther more accuratly,000 buck or #2 lead. i am planing on alternating with the shorter distance one first and then 2 of the longer distance ones.

                Hi...


                If you're going to use a shotgun, I don't think that what guage you use is going to matter much. Bigger guages just hold a few more pellets.

                Have you considered the .22 sem-auto? That also is a fairly good gun, and doesn't fill the fur with a lot of holes if you're interested in selling the fur.
