You’re talking about “chain-shot”, to my knowledge it wasn’t used as anti-personnel, it was used to tear down rigging in ships.

And to answer you question: it would be fun to shoot at trees, and squirrels…

One of my pneumatics has a 1" barrel, for a shotgun effect I first put in a slice of 1" wooden dowell about a quater in. thick, followed by 4 to 6 marbles,then some tissue or plastic stuffed in to hold the marbles in place ,works pretty good but spreads quite a bit.
