I've never heard people say "kill two birds with one shot" or "kill two birds with one throw". So maybe "killing two birds with one stone" might just mean thrift: you get back the same stone (which might be a particularly good one for slingshot use) and use it again for the second bird.

Apologies to my feathered friends. Now back to sleep.
