Not sure I've thought that one through much, honestly. Right now it's 10% of 1/2D, right? That would make it something like 12 yards. At that range, I believe a shot pattern is 6-12" in diameter, which is less than one 00 pellet every 4x4" area, with 2.75" shot. So that seems not right to me, and perhaps a flat "only for a couple of yards" would make more sense.
