Dove hunting is fun, rewarding, and one of those rare birds you not only can but should shoot while seated in a chair. If you’re going after doves, remember a few things for greater success: first, be sure to aim with enough of a lead to land your shot. Lead will vary depending on how close you are to your target, but keep in mind that doves move fast, and act accordingly. Practice really does make perfect, as does being familiar with both your shotgun and your ammunition. Guns all perform differently and the ammo they’re loaded with also creates a varied performance. Practice in advance so you know what to expect – and make a point to practice at different distances, just like you’ll be shooting on a hunt.
These particular rounds are made by Estate for your 12-gauge shotgun. Each shotshell measures 2 ¾” in length which is the most common size. Be sure you know what length shotshell or shotshells your shotgun is designed to use, because attempting to use the wrong length in your gun can have catastrophic results. These rounds have a 1 ounce load which is enough power to propel pellets towards targets without creating so much force they’re utterly destroyed. They’re also filled with #8 lead shot which is the favorite size of many dove hunters. Use these rounds while hunting game such as doves or for target shooting.
When you order this box of ammunition from Estate you get 10 boxes of 25 rounds each for a grand total of 250 rounds. With 250 rounds you can spend some time practicing and still have plenty of ammunition left for the hunt itself, after all, you need a big box so you don’t run out at the wrong moment. Take a moment to pattern your shotgun, and remember, many experienced dove hunters use open chokes with an improved cylinder. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1290 feet per second. Estate is headquartered in London and is a subsidiary of Federal, which is located in Anoka, Minnesota. Order now and be ready to hit the fields when dove season rolls around.
