DUCK MAN wrote:HOW FAR CA A 10 GAUGE SHOOT
I think a 10 gauge can kill way farther out there on average simply because there is much more shot.
at 70 yards smaller gauges shot patterns are pretty thin, so logically a more dense 10 gauge pattern is more likely to kill at longer distance.
I don't recommend shooting at birds way up high, but one day we hunted for several hours without seeing any birds, then my friend spotted a drake mallard way up in the stratosphere, must have been 120 + yards up but I decided to crack off a shot with my BPS 10 gauge just for the heck of it, led the bird by a long ways and dropped him dead with one shot, me and my friend looked at each other like ***? it was just regular #2 steel shot, nothing special. I don't know that I'll try it again any time soon, but it was wild to see a bird fall dead from that height. :withstupid:
