The shotgun is indisputably the most versatile firearm in anyone’s arsenal. With most modern shotguns having the ability to swap not only chokes but entire barrels. Within a couple of seconds you can go from a 26” standard field barrel with multiple choke options, to a rifled 21” barrel with a scope for taking deer, to an 18 ½” home defense barrel ideally suited for 00 buckshot. One gun, dozens of options.
#6 shot is a very good all-around utility load for 12 guage shotgun, useful for a wide array of animals, as well as shooting sports. However, some locations prohibit the use of and lead shot, which has put ammunition manufacturers in the position of finding creating shot which is legal for such restrictions.
Winchester’s Xpert® 12-gauge in 2 ¾”, #6 shot with a 1 oz. load fits the bill quite well. Steel shot has a higher velocity that comparable lead shots, with this load pushing 1,325fps at the muzzle as opposed to 1,290fps from the Winchester Super-X.
The Xpert 2 ¾” is designed as a reduced recoil loading, hopefully helping reduce battered shoulder syndrome. We may not want to admit it, but nobody really enjoys softball-size bruises and wincing everytime we brush against a wall or door frame.
Winchester Xpert® is a go to loading for your next waterfowl outing, and bulkammo.com has what you need to make it a success.
