Cartridge Guide
 
Ammunition

You must always make sure the cartridge type and shot size is suitable for both the purpose and gun. If you use non-toxic shot make sure gun and cartridge are compatible and do not allow cartridges of different bores to become mixed.

A smaller size bore can easily get lodged in the barrel of a 12-bore gun. If a 12-bore cartridge is then loaded and fired, it can burst the barrel.

In the case of a misfire, keep the barrels pointed in a safe direction and open the gun cautiously, after waiting 30 second.

Shotguns fire shots (small pellets) contained in a cartridge. One of the most commonly used shot sizes is No.6 that has traditionally been used for most game birds and woodpigeon. Larger shot is used for larger quarry such as geese and smaller shot is used for clay shooting.

Shot size must be chosen not only for the range, but also for the game. The shot must reach with enough energy to penetrate to a depth sufficient to kill the game.

 Lead shot is now banned in England and Wales for use:

·      Anywhere below the high water mark on the foreshore

·      On many wetland sites of special scientific interest (SSSI)

·      On all waterfowl anywhere

It is law to have a certain combination of calibre, weight and velocity to ensure a humane kill for deer management.
