How Far Will a Shotgun Shell Travel?

Answer

The shotgun uses shells filled with pellets. A choke controls the shot string, which is what the pellets would look like, during firing. How far the pellets will travel depends on how tight the choke is; the tightest choke will cause pellets to travel about 40 yards, or 120 feet. Older models of shotguns had a fixed choke, but newer models use a screw-in choke system which enables hunters to choose a choke to match the type of game being hunted.
