Bird shot is NOT in heart chamber.

Might be better if it where. Not much to hurt in there. If it's stuck in a vessel supplying the heart muscle itself, that would not be so good, and it would cause a classic "heart attack", although in the classic case it's a blood clot or piece of arterial plaque that blocks the vessel, not a #8 lead shot.

What is the literal size of the pellet?
Like a beebee or smaller?
