    I have an NEF single shot 20 gauge and I want to get a simple and cheap kit for reloading shells for it, any recommendations? Any help is much appreciated. I'm also fine with making my own kit but I don't know what to buy, so if you know please tell. Thanks.

    With all the panic going around, I have put my ammunition buying on the back burner and focused on other preps. I have still occasionally picked up some 12 ga shells, as they are available and prices haven't skyrocketed. However, 00 buck has been impossible to find, unless you are willing to pay...

    Your Ammo Could Have Killed Me and My Family! Shocking but true... I have a Remington 1100 tactical shotgun that I use for home defense. It’s been a very fine gun and I trust it with my defense. I have read a lot of reviews of HORNADY ammo and felt that would make a good choice for my home...

    Hello all, I am about to purchase my first shotgun, a Maverick 88 security (12 gauge). I've read several posts here and elsewhere that lead me to believe it's a good value gun for what I'm looking for. I'm a shotgun newbie, and wanted to bounce a few questions off of you guys, if you don't...

    Hi all. Question: Can I use RIFLED slugs in my Mossberg model 695, which has a rifled barrel? I normally use SABOT slugs and that is what the gun is designed to shoot. Some have said that the rifled slugs -lacking the plastic jacket of the sabot- tend to foul the rifling... is this really an...

    I'm wondering what you guys are utilizing to store your shotgun ammunition? And can it permanently be housed like most other cartridge ammunition? I am thinking about picking up an 8-gal. version (the smallest one) of the Rubbermaid ActionPacker series. Would this work well for keeping the...

    What do you have loaded in you shotgun incase of a break in? Many people have 00 buck and some even slugs… The least that is thought about is 71/2 birdshot. Well during some testing I have seen that to protect other family members from danger of shot, you need to use birdshot. Seeing what...

    For general use of a shotgun - say less then 50 yards, which would you prefer buckshot or slug? Of course a lot of it will depend on what kind of choke you are using. My mossberg 590 is almost useless at 35 yards. Winchester 00 buckshot, only one pellet hit the target. But then again, the...
