Improved Shooting Performance — That's Our Goal & Our Promise

What shotgun shells should be purchased for target practice?

Posted on March 13, 2012 by admin Posted in Old Coach’s Corner

It can be confusing for new shooters but here are a few thoughts:

Shooting parks allow only three shot sizes – 71/2 , 8s, or 9s.

Inexpensive shells for practice sessions are adequate.

Lead shot is acceptable and commonly used for target shooting practice at most shooting parks.

Most shotgun shells come in boxes of 25.

Examine your shotgun and be sure to buy the shells that fit it.

Shells meant for hunting are usually quite different from target shells and are more powerful.
