well the .22 i would use in Longs and no father that 40 yards and make it a head shot. 12 gauge use #4 shot in 2 3/4 or 3 in. out to about 30-35. I don't know about a 20 gauge but the specs are probly about the same. The 12 gauge is probly more effective than the .22 or 20 gauge.

What Dereg2 meant was to use #4 buck shot, which is larger than #4 shot, or use 00buck and shoot 3"mag. if the gun will take 3".This will be effective out to 50 yrds.Also, you might check out a post from a couple days ago, author was Allen Dent who asked this same question.More details for the beginner.Good Luck!
