Was thinking about taking the old pump 410 out for a squirrel hunt wanted to know what size shot y'all recommend and more importantly where to find them

When I used my 410 for squirrels, I preferred Remington Xpress 3" #5s

Appreciate the input fellas I have a Winchester model 42 my grandfather passed down to me and I wanted to take it out but had trouble finding shells and had never used it for squirrel.

6 is my go to shot size for squirrel. 7.5 works but not quite as much well. 4 shot has too few in the pattern for a 410 from my experience.
