12 gauge Bear/critter loads.

In my quest for non-lethal loads I ended up with the 6mm plastic balls at Walmart for about $20 for a half-gallon of the 6mm plastic balls. My tests disclosed about 20 grains of 700X, a WAA12 wad and judicious placement of the balls resulted in a fine 12 gauge load.

A pesky housecat was bothering my resident rabbits at the "Bunny Castle" brush pile. Two loads convinced the kitty to stay home and let my rabbits alone. My barn pigeons are all gone and NOT one hole is in my barn roof.

One CAUTION: Always wear eye protection because the plastic balls tend to Bounce Back from a hard surface.
