How to Select Shotgun Shot Size for Hunting
Article gives basic advice on choosing the proper shot size to use in your shotgun for hunters.
First we should take a how a shotshell works in a shotgun. A shotgun differs from a rifle in that it shoots a shell filled with round pellets. A rifle by comparison shoots one solid bullet. I good way to look at it might be that a rifle is like throwing a rock and a shotgun is like throwing a handful of pebbles. I should mention that shotguns can also fire a slug, or a solid bullet, but this article is dealing with standard shotshells only. Special shotgun barrels for slugs are rifled on the inside instead of smooth. These barrels are not designed for standard shotshells.
Common shot sizes listed from smallest to largest is 9, 8, 7.5, 6, 5, 4, 2, BB, and size #0 and #00 'buckshot'. The size #0 and #00 are pronounced aught (#0) and double aught (#00). For the most part standard shotshells run to size BB, while the buckshot loadings are used for deer hunting in special situations and personal defense. For our purposes we will deal with sizes 9 through BB.
While the proper shot selection is a matter of personal preference and other factors that we will later discuss, here is a short guide for matching shot size and game. Number 9 shot is not a good size for most hunting purposes, especially for beginners.. Used at close range for small birds such as doves and woodcocks it is ok, but for most purposes 8 shot is where normal hunting loads start. Number 8 shot is used for dove, quail, and woodcock. Number 7.5 shot is used for grouse and rabbits. Number 6 shot is used for squirrels and pheasant. Number 5 shot is the beginning of loads for larger game and is a combination load for turkey and ducks and will still work for squirrels without too much damage. Number 4 shot is used for turkeys. Number 2 and BB shot is used for large waterfowl such as ducks and geese.
Now that I have given the above guide (that many will disagree with), here are all the qualifiers! If the location that you hunt tends to offer longer shots, let's say over thirty yards, you should probably move up to the next largest shot size. Conversely, if your hunting location offers generally shorter shots, let's say under 20 yards, go with the next smallest size. For game animals not listed above stay with comparable body size to get an idea of what size shot to use. However this is not foolproof. For instance, rabbits are generally larger than squirrels, but squirrels are tougher and you need larger shot to provide a humane kill.
While this short guide is in no way all encompassing (I didn't even mention the effect of choke on shot selection), I hope that the information will help you get started. Keep one thing in mind, hitting the target is always the most important part of the shot. I'm sure many turkeys and ducks have fallen to #9 shot whether it is a good idea or not. Most shotshell manufacturers provide a guide on the box for choosing loads for your game. Stick with a shot size in the middle of their guide and you should be safe.
