Killing Range of Shotguns


Killing Range of Shotguns

Having received several inquiries pertaining to the killing ranges of the different gauge shotguns, I give below a table which names the distances at which each size will usually kill. These are meant to be averages only and apply to heavy and medium weight weapons with the regulation lengths of barrel and are probably of most value as a basis for comparing the efficiency of the various sizes. There are so many factors entering into the effectiveness of shotguns that an infallible table of killing ranges would be impossible. Size of shot, quantity of powder, length of barrel, weight and size and vitality of the game are all features to be taken into consideration. Experts in the use of the "scatter" gun agree that a heavy arm will shoot stronger and kill farther than the same gauge and length of barrel of lighter weight, also that a gun should be loaded in reference to size and quantity of shot and powder, in proportion to its weight. In giving the following ranges it is assumed that the guns are loaded with loads suitable for such game as ducks and chickens and used under average circumstances:

28 gaugeó32 to 35 yards.
20 gaugeó36 to 40 yards.
16 gaugeó40 to 45 yards.
12 gaugeó45 to 50 yards.
10 gaugeó50 to 60 yards.
8 gaugeó60 to 70 yards.
