Waterfowl – Shot Selection Chart – Silvercore Firearms Training BC
Here is an easy to read chart to help you get started choosing non-toxic shot for hunting waterfowl!
There are many choices of non-lead shotgun ammunition for waterfowl hunters. The shot types that are approved for waterfowl hunting include steel, bismuth, and several combinations of tungsten, iron, nickel, tin, etc. Steel shot is lighter and harder than lead. Steel’s more aerodynamic shape than lead shot creates shot strings (the shot pattern length) that are smaller in length and diameter, delivering more dense patterns.
As you read this chart, you will see some options for gauge, shot size as well as choke recommendation. For shot, there will be a recommended size given for steel shot as well as the other approved non-toxic alloy types. The options in BOLD type are those recommended for beginning shooters for the best results for their shooting skill level.
