What Is the Difference between Shotgun Shells?

Answer

The difference between shotgun shells is measured according to their gauge or the weight of the pure lead balls in the shotgun shells. The measurements are made in fractions of a pound, which means the lead ball of a 12-gauge shotgun weighs 1/12 of a pound. The more common shotgun gauge is the 12-gauge although the 10-gauge shotgun is normally used for hunting.
