    It's not an acronym. It's a size indicator for lead shot...about .175 to .18 inches

    Just trying to ascertain the origin of the reference. Whether it refers to two words that have been shortened, or an acronym, or even just the bastardized diminutive of "baby" shot. Used it thru out life and never really knew what it stood for.
