Good resources re: shotgun ammo?

#1 Post by DirtyFH » Sat Apr 02, 2011 8:03 am

Anyone know any good resources to read about different shotgun ammo/shells? I would love a good overview of different loads, sizes, etc.

Wikipedia is meh.

Do you want reviews of specific brands or just general ideas about #7 vs #8 etc.?

get a 10 gauge, definately. no in all seriousness get a 12ga, and just pick up boxes of ammo, they're cheap. and fun.

Just want general ideas about lengths, different loads, etc. Seems like there are so many. I get the differences between gauges though.

Link provided by masonalannz was very good.
