The shotgun has been around for a long time, although it’s come a long way since its early days. Back in 1722 the firearms world had long guns like Brown Bess, a muzzle-loading smoothbore musket that was capable of serious power. Loading Brown Bess was fairly straightforward, and although the muskets were meant to be loaded with lead balls, there were a lot of shortages, and that meant a variety of solid objects were rammed down the barrel of many a Brown Bess. We’ve come a long way since those days, though, and today our shot guns are breech-loaded and the projectiles are contained in neat cases like these from Winchester.
This is 00 buck; each shell contains 8 pellets and is 2 ¾” long, which is standard. These are low recoil shotgun shells specifically designed to make shooting easier on both you and your gun. 00 buck is most commonly used for hunting game such as deer and feral hogs but has also been used in other countries for big cats like leopards and lions. It’s also a favorite of many shooters for home defense and is a great target load. Each shell bursts from the barrel of your shotgun with a muzzle velocity of 1145 feet per second and blows away your target with a muzzle energy of 1335 foot-pounds.
