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.?

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.
