    If you are going to bark squirrels with a 416 Rigby you better aim for the next tree over.  Hit the branch under the squirrel and you will launch fuzzy tailed rat goo into low earth orbit.  :D

    ...you made me remember a scene in "the Simpsons" when Homer tried to hunt rabbits with traps..

    If you need a rabbit hole to go down while under “Corn Teen”, you tube has hundreds of squirrel catapult videos.

    I guess the answer to the question would/could be region specific. Here in East TN it could easily be .22LR and that's what I'd go with. From limb chikkin to deer, it will do just fine. And if you know some rudimentary anatomy, then you can take down any 'uninvited guests' easily, too.

    I took this thread to mean, YOUR most useful cartridge. As in, what do you use the most and does the most for you. 
    Not a hypothetical all purpose cartridge for the US or the world. 
    What do I use the most. 

    That’s how I saw it, at least.

    That's how I took it too but I've changed my mind 5 times since I opened it first...

    Rats! I liked where this thread was going.

    12 gauge. I have a 20, had a 16 but the 12 is the most useful. Bunnies, duck, turkey, squirrel and upland with one "chambering"..
    I like Elmer Keith; I married his daughter :wink:
