    I have hunted Spruce Hens (aka Stupid Chickens) in Alaska with a 22 pistol. I'd have no problem hunting Ruffed grouse with my 39A.

    Again, I am reminded of the movie True Grit, when Glen Campbells character blasts the turkey with a Sharps cavalry carbine :lol: Only if my lever gun was a .17 hmr or a .22. I would like to have some of the breast left to eat after the shot.
    ALL THE WAY!!!

    I might eat grouse if I had my 45-70. I would prefer to use either a cast 385 grain RN ahead of 30.0 IMR 4198 or, even better, a 45-70 shot load which have worked well on ptarmigan at close range even in the rifled barrel. Of course one of my .22 lever guns would be even better suited.

    I used to load shot loads for my 45-70 and carried a few with me when big game hunting. Never shot bird with them but they were murder on rabits. The pattern is doughnut shaped so you aim slightly of center.reflex264
