Best Place to Buy Shotgun Shells Online

In Best Place to Buy Shotgun Shells OnlineIn 2016, there are plenty of shop options for people who are looking to buy shotgun shells; however, if you want a wide selection of shotgun gauges, styles, and brands to choose from, then there’s only one place you should be looking: Discount Enterprises (DeGuns)!

What Gauge Are You Looking For?

There are numerous shotgun gauge sizes in existence. If you’re looking to purchase shotgun shells, then it’s important that you buy the shells in a gauge that matches the gauge of your shotgun. For example, if you have a 12-gauge shotgun, then you need to buy 12-gauge shotgun shells.

You might find it interesting to learn what gauge numbers mean—if you didn’t already know. Gauge numbers are in reference to the bore diameter of shotguns and are equivalent to the amount of lead balls that can fit inside the diameter and add up to measure 1 pound. Therefore, a 20-guage has a diameter that is equal to a lead ball weighing 1/20-pound of lead.

Available shotgun gauges today include: 28-gauge, 20-gauge, 16-gauge, 12-gauge, and 10-gauge, in addition to .410-bore (a common shotgun chambering, but not actually a gauge).

Different Uses for Small and Large Shotgun Shells

Shotguns with smaller gauges are typically used for clay target shooting and hunting small birds and small game. Larger gauge shotguns are often used for clay target games, personal defense, and hunting bigger animals—like turkey and deer.

In addition to gauge, shotgun shells are offered in a range of shot sizes. The largest shots are referred to as “buckshot.” Buckshots are popular with people who shoot larger animals, like deer and bears.
