Re: What's your choice of pellet size for squirrel?
#6 is the smallest I'd go. Less pellets, more energy equals quicker kills and not as many pellets to dig out.
For farther shots, some old timers use #4 to extend range, full choke.
I still have some #5's laying around that were custom loaded for squirrel. I think back in the day this was the preferred shot size but I haven't seen it on shelves in a long time.
