Mike: There is no choke in this gun, apparently the shot bouncing off of the 3/8" section redirects the shot into a tighter pattern. Have shot mice in our Maine camp by baiting them with nuts against our wood bin.

I bagged my first ruffed grouse with .22 birdshot from a bolt action Remington. Took a couple rounds to finish it off.

This is getting away from the rats, but still sticking with the rat shot. Back in the '60s I was active in the Boy Scouts for several years. Made Eagle and was inducted into the Order of the Arrow, later on. But, for a couple summers at summer camp there was a unique event that we could shoot. We always had a 50 ft. .22 rifle range, but they added "Mo-Skeet-O". It was a range where you shot miniature clays that were launched from a thrower, using .22 smoothbores and rat shot. It was great fun for us boys.

Here's a link to a complete set, gun thrower and targets, from a few months ago.

If you enlarge the pic of the box of targets you can see that it was manufactured by the Routledge Mfg. Co. Also, notice the barrel markings on the Rem. 121 shown. One says .22 CAL MO-SKEET-O BORE. Is this what y'all are calling the Routledge bore?

SRH: That's a Routledge bore high class outfit for sure. A mod 121 Rem . a far nicer
gun then my alloy framed Rem 572. We hand toss small juice cans and its loads of fun in a small area . Easy to police up afterwards.

Just what I didn't need ...... another gun to add to my wish list. It would be fun to have one like I shot as a boy. Maybe I could use it to wingshoot carpenter bees around the shed.
