- Q & A
If you’re new to shooting clays with your 12 gauge shotgun, whether trap or skeet, there are things you can do to improve your score without even firing a shot. Using a safe, unloaded shotgun, stand in front of a mirror and practice mounting your shotgun to your shoulder. Make sure you raise the stock to your cheek first, then lower the stock to your shoulder, not the other way around, in order to get the right position. Keep your cheek glued to the stock, look down the barrel, and keep your eyes on the target itself. Professionals practice mounting their shotgun to their shoulder in front of a mirror on a daily basis, typically suggesting doing so ten times a day. Getting the basics down goes a long way with all aspects of firearms.
You also need the right ammunition for a successful day of shooting trap or skeet. This particular ammunition is made by Federal for your 12-gauge shotgun. Each shotshell measures 2 ¾” in length which is the standard shotshell length. Always make sure you know what length shotshell your shotgun is made to use; never assume. Each round is filled with #8 buckshot and contains a 7/8 ounce load. 7/8 ounce provides enough power to propel pellets towards clays with shattering force, and because it’s a smaller load it produces less felt recoil, making accuracy easier to attain. Because of that, many shooters use 7/8 ounce loads for training purposes. This ammunition is specifically made for shattering clays and is also great for target practice.
When you order this box of Federal ammunition you get 25 rounds. With 25 rounds you can have a great afternoon shattering clays with your 12-gauge shotgun or punching holes in paper at your favorite outdoor shooting spot. Each of these rounds leaves the barrel of your shotgun with a muzzle velocity of 1200 feet per second. Federal has been in business since 1922 when founder Charles Horn took over a failing factory, re-founding Federal in its place. Federal manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Anoka, Minnesota, according to exacting standards. Whether you want to shatter clays or ventilate stationary targets, order now, and feed your shotgun.
