Used by hunters, sport shooters, military and law enforcement – the 12 gauge is the most used shotgun to this day, and it has existed in its current cartridge configuration since the late 1800s.

Shotgun shell casings were originally full-length brass or paper hulls with a brass base. Some were sold loaded, but it was also possible to buy them primed and unloaded (which allowed the shooter to load the shell as they desired). In 1884, Frank Chamberlin patented a machine with the ability to load 1,500 shotshells per hour, a remarkable feat at the time. Within 10 years, Chamberlin had become a direct competitor with Winchester and the Union Metallic Cartridge Company. Unfortunately, this was the beginning of the end for Chamberlin, as he was competing against his suppliers. Chamberlin left the ammunition industry by 1900, and focused instead on trapshooting devices.

Shotgun ammo technology grew by leaps and bounds in the first 50 years of the 1900s. Brass hulls were replaced by paper hulls, and smokeless powder (cleaner and more powerful) replaced black powder. Remington blazed the trail with new products for shotgunners, including the introduction of its Model 870 shotgun in 1951. Nine years later, Remington introduced shotgun shells with plastic hulls – which featured a more robust case and kept the contents of the case dry even in the field. Within the next year, O.F. Mossberg & Sons introduced their iconic pump shotgun, the Model 500.

Shotgun shells commonly fire shot or slug projectiles. Shot is usually made up of pellets of lead or steel, but shot loads of tungsten and bismuth are also available. Pellet sizes vary between 0.36” (000 Buck) and 0.08” (#9 shot). Shotguns are used to hunt birds of all sizes – some jurisdictions even allow hunting with shotguns for large game, including deer.

Shotgun slugs are single solid projectiles designed for hunting large game closer than 100 yards. They work well in hunting because the large size transfers high energy into the target. Some shotgun barrels spin the slug with rifling for added accuracy, while other slugs are wrapped in a sabot – which is designed to increase range and accuracy of the slug in exchange for projectile weight and energy transfer.

The use of the 12 gauge for self defense is once again on the rise, and specialty ammunition is being produced – including options for low recoil, and combinations of buckshot and smaller pellets. Proficiency with a shotgun for self defense comes more quickly than it does with a handgun, due to the greater inherent accuracy of a long gun. Additionally, 12 gauge shotguns enjoy the advantage of imparting greater energy than a handgun, as well as having decreased issues with over-penetration.

From personal protection to many different types of hunting, the 12 gauge is a good choice for many tasks – which is why this shotgun ammunition will likely remain popular for a long time to come.

    "Good ammo at a fair price worked well in my pump and semi auto. The only down fall I see is I wish the wad covered the shot so the lead wouldn't dirty the barrel as much. Over all very happy. "

    "Purchased 500 rounds of this ammo, shot 25 rounds without any problems. With the discount from facebook this purchase per box was cheaper than any other place I could have purchased this ammo. I have shot this ammo before with no problems, cycles well in my Saiga 12."
