Shot shells

GAME LOADS vs COMPETITION LOADS

Game (field) shotshells are used for hunting, while Competition (target) shotshells are used to break clays.

Game loads are generally considered to cover shot sizes 6 all the way up to size T and include all of the buckshot sizes. Competition shotshells generally start at shot size 7, and end at shot size 9. Of course, there are exceptions. Smaller shot sizes, such as size 10, may be used to hunt certain game birds such as quail. It all depends on what you are hunting.

As there is much overlap in application of field shotshell/game combinations, when choosing your game load be sure to consider your game as well as the distance you are shooting from, and the payload of the round. The shot size of all products can be found in the description of each product along with the weight of shot loaded in the round.
