shotgun shell as "buckshot" even if it is very small like #7 size. Not that anyone would every try to shoot a deer with it. I started to make a thread explaining all this a while ago but it's too complex. Google or Wikipedia can lay it out pretty well.

on edit: I used to get .22 cal 'birdshot' in which the pellets were WAY smaller than any you would ever find in a shotgun cartridge. I don't know if they still make it but I would say the size on those was less than 0.5 millimeter.
