12 Gauge Ammo

12 gauge shotshells are versatile tools for every purpose: hunting, self-defense, law enforcement, and even military operations. The 12 gauge has a bore of about .73 inches or 18.53mm; shells for it come in a wide variety of configurations for different purposes. Standard length 2-3/4"" shells offer less firepower than "magnum" 3-inch shells, but produce lower recoil; magnum shells are generally used only for hunting. You'll find 12 gauge ammo for hunters, trapshooters, and self-defense for sale here at Widener's.

In general, 12ga. hunting loads typically fire 8-10 pellets of 00 buckshot at a muzzle velocity of around 1,325 feet per second; self-defense loads often produce around 1,200 feet per second in order to reduce recoil and overpenetration risk. Slugs, on the other hand, fire a large projectile (usually about one ounce) at a much higher velocity to extend the shotgun's reach. Some slugs use a saboted design intended for a rifled barrel only.

While not suited for self-defense or deer hunting, birdshot loads are a great choice for bird hunting or target shooting. 12 gauge shotguns are the standard for sporting clays, a sport vaguely reminiscent of golf that is played over several prepared positions with clay pigeons.

Steel birdshot loads in particular are a must have for waterfowl hunting, as environmental protection laws typically prohibit the use of lead shot in aquatic habitats.

    Where legal, these 12 gauge blank-firing cartridges be used for filming, early warning tripwire devices, and even fashioned into custom loads by clever reloaders. Since each shell is made using traditional components but lacks projectiles or shot, they are often used for hobby shooting with launchers and other fun devices. Each shell comprises a brass head, 209 primer, and clean-burning powder that is properly contained.

    Blank rounds can be loud and should still be used with hearing protection. That being said, these 12 gauge blanks can also be used to train hunting dogs or camp horses, accustoming them to the sound of gunfire without running off as a reaction. Fiocchi is an Italian manufacturer that supports American shooting sports and economy with their wide range of ammunition.

    This ammo was designed for less-than-lethal use, however, this ammo could still cause serious injury or death under certain uses and scenarios. One such scenario is using it in close proximity to your target. Be sure to handle a shotgun, rifle or pistol that is loaded with less-than-lethal ammunition in the same way you would any other.

    Black powder blanks are often used by reloaders to ring in the New Year with a fun, loud, and smokey effect. These shells from Winchester allow you to get the same function without the reloading effort. Each 12 gauge shell is built using a brass head, reloadable hull, and fiber-based card which keeps the powder from spilling out. When fired, the shell will produce a loud bit of noise and flash which can be fun for celebrations, filming, and training hunting dogs with appropriate safety measures in place.

    This ammo was designed for less-than-lethal use, however, this ammo could still cause serious injury or death under certain uses and scenarios. One such scenario is using it in close proximity to your target. Be sure to handle a shotgun, rifle or pistol that is loaded with less-than-lethal ammunition in the same way you would any other.

    Customer Reviews

    Very Loud

    Ammo is great louder than the smokeless power ones. The only bad is that black gun powder is very corrosive and needs the barrel clean right away.
