When it comes to shotguns one of the most common mistakes shooters make is trying to treat them like rifles. Unlike rifles, which require you to line up your sights and take careful aim, shotguns are point-and-shoot weapons. Hitting your target is more about proper form than anything else, in fact, because if you don’t have the stock glued to your cheek and properly tucked into your shoulder, you’re probably going to miss. Make sure you place the stock up against your cheek first, then drop your head and the gun down to nestle against your shoulder. With your eye looking straight down the barrel, you shouldn’t have any trouble hitting what you point at. As always, practice, practice, practice.
This ammunition is made for your 12-gauge shotgun. Each shell is 2 ¾” long and filled with #8 shot. These rounds have a 1 ounce load which is more than enough power to propel the pellets within towards your target with killing force. Staying with a 1 ounce load rather than a higher 1 1/8 or 1 ¼ load not only reduces felt recoil but makes it easier to get on target and stay there. These rounds leave the barrel of your shotgun with a muzzle velocity of 1290 feet per second and impact targets with stunning force. This ammunition is specifically made for hunting doves and similarly-sized birds.
There are 25 rounds in this single box of ammunition from Estate. That’s enough to get you started, but if you want to make sure you don’t run out on your next dove hunt you should buy more than one box. And don’t forget practice; one of the biggest mistakes many hunters make is never getting their guns out unless it’s hunting season, which can easily result in missed shots and lost game. Estate is a subsidiary of the well-respected Federal Cartridge Company. Ammunition is manufactured at Federal’s factory in Anoka, Minnesota. Place your order today, and feed your shotgun.
