Shotgun shells are self-contained cartridges that can be loaded with shot (typically lead) or slugs. Of course there are also non-lethal shotgun shells out there like the rubber ones used by law enforcement. Shells have come a long way over the years, having gotten their start with brass cases resembling rifle cartridges with card wads that were made of leather, cork, and felt, among other things. In 1877 a move away from brass shotgun shells began when paper hulls were created, and it wasn’t until the 1960’s that paper was replaced with plastic. As of the 1980’s, paper hulls had been entirely done away with, leaving us with today’s plastic hulls. Safe to say we’re all relieved for the advances in technology, especially when it comes to improving our ammunition.
These 12 gauge shells are loaded with 9 pellets of 00 buck. They’re the standard 2 ¾” in length. Each shell leaves the barrel of your shotgun with stunning speed and impacts your target with overwhelming force. 00 buck has a variety of uses but is very popular and widely used for deer hunting, due in part to its ability to deliver a clean kill even when fired through pine boughs or bushes, a shot not possible with rifle rounds. It’s also used for home defense due to its stopping power and wider pattern over the singular force of a slug. You can also use these shells for target practice; not much is more fun than demolishing melons and pumpkins with your 12 gauge.
There are 10 shells in this box. They’re made by Sellier and Bellot, a company with almost 200 years of experience behind it. Their plant is located in Vlasim, Czech Republic, and all ammunition is made to incredibly high standards. A 10-shell box is a nice size for carrying in your pocket or transporting in a range bag, but it really isn’t very many rounds. With that in mind, you might want to consider ordering multiple boxes, because the last thing you want is to not have enough ammo on your next hunt or target practice day. And remember, the 12-gauge shotgun is an immensely powerful firearm, and you should practice with it just like any other gun. Get yourself stocked up on 00 buck and keep your shotgun ready for anything.
