you could kill a treed lion with a 22 if you are a decent shot the buckshot will do the job but ruin your hide.

If you must use a shotgun for your treed lion, by all means use 000 BUCK for your lion harvest. It will deliver the best energy and penetration of all the buck shot.

I suggest the use of 1 ought buck( Refering to SLUG) Dad shot a cat a couple years back at about 35 yds witha Slug and blew it clean outa the tree and there was no kicking or even eye blinks after that. The was a hole big enough you could put your boot through it.
