Shotgun shells have quite a history. In the 1800’s they were made of brass similar to rifle rounds and had card wads made from materials such as felt, leather, cork, and paperboard. In order to seal over the top overshot wad, waterglass was commonly used; no roll or fold crimp was used on those early shotgun shells. Around 1877 paper hulls began replacing the brass, and paper remained the standard until the 1960’s. But even when plastic did replace paper it took twenty years to become the standard hull material. Today shotgun shells have plastic hulls with brass bases and come with a variety of wadding and powders.
These shotgun rounds are made by Hornady, a company known for their innovation and incredibly quality. Hornady was founded in 1944 by Joyce Hornady, whose goal was to provide the firearms community with ammunition capable of far greater accuracy than what was currently available to the general public. For more than sixty years Hornady has been manufacturing high-quality ammunition for both target and self-defense purposes, and if anything their standards only get higher.
