- Q & A
Shotgun shells have come quite a ways over the years. In the 19th century they were made with brass hulls very similar to those used for rifle rounds with card wads made of felt, leather, and paperboard; waterglass was usually used to seal it all in. In 1877 paper hulls replaced the brass ones and remained popular until the 1960’s. Even then it took until the 1980’s for plastic hulls to become commonplace; today, shells have a basic composition of brass, gunpowder, over-powder wad, shot wad, pellets, over-shot wad, and crimp, all packed into that plastic hull. Sellier and Bellot has been making ammunition throughout the evolution of the shotgun shell, and these 12 gauge shells are a fine example of their lengthy experience.
These 12 gauge shells are packed with 9 pellets of 00 buck. Each round flies towards your target with great speed with a muzzle velocity of 1180 feet per second and hammers home with phenomenal knockdown power. These rounds are most commonly used for hunting game such as whitetail deer but are also sometimes used for home defense and target practice. There just isn’t much more fun than annihilating some pumpkins or water jugs with your shotgun; if you haven’t tried it, buy an extra box of these shells and get to it. Hunters enjoy shotshell for its ability to deliver a clean kill in many situations where a rifle round would fail. These are well-made rounds from an established company, and a nice choice for any shooter.
You get 25 rounds in this box of ammunition from Sellier and Bellot. The company was founded in 1825, and with almost 200 years of experience behind them, they’ve certainly gotten the process down to a science. Your shotgun is capable of delivering devastating blows, and with these buckshot rounds you can easily take down a deer with one shot. For the best possible shot, stay within 50 yards and don’t shoot from the rear. Buckshot can tear through pine boughs and bushes for a clean kill, and that isn’t something you can say for a rifle round. If you’re a deer hunter, place your order for these 00 buck shells, and get outside.
