It doesn’t take much to knock down an upland game bird, but one must cover a lot of ground to find them. This is why many purpose built upland hunting guns put an emphasis on light weight because they will be carried far more than they will be shot. This element is what has kept some of the smaller gauges viable over the years while 12ga has dominated the shotgun market.
