Dove hunting is a favorite fall pastime for a great number of shooters. If you’re going dove hunting, try a few tips to go home with a larger number of these small but admittedly tasty birds. First, make sure to exaggerate your lead when taking a shot. Doves move fast, so giving them as much as a six foot lead works well. Yes it may look like you’re going to overshoot, but you won’t. Also, practice shooting while sitting, because that’s how you’re likely to be doing it. Work on shouldering your shotgun while sitting and, if you can, shoot some clays beforehand to get a feel for shooting moving targets from a seated position.
Make sure you have the right ammunition, too. Estate manufactures these rounds for your 12-gauge shotgun. Each round measures 2 ¾” in length which is the most common length of shotshell out there. Always make sure you know what length shotshell your shotgun is chambered for, because trying to use the wrong length can have disastrous results. These rounds have a 1 ounce load which propels pellets towards targets with sufficient force to be deadly and also creates a bit less felt recoil. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1290 feet per second. These rounds are filled with #8 steel shot which is good for doves, just make sure you’re at the right distance since up-close shots with #8 can cause too much damage. They’re also good for target shooting.
When you order this box of ammunition from Estate you get 25 rounds, which is just enough to get started. Granted these boxes are just the right size for stashing in your pack or stacking on the shelf of your gun safe, but if you want some serious trigger time, order multiple boxes. You might be surprised how fast you burn through shotshells while hunting doves, and you’ll go through it fast target shooting, too. It’s just that much fun. Estate is headquartered in London and has a rich, established history. It’s a subsidiary of Federal, which is located in Anoka, Minnesota. Order now and hit the fields for some doves of your own.
