Dayside on Fox is ramping it up, too.
6 shot in a 28 is the same size pellet as 6 shot in ANY gauge. Same for ANY size shot.
It's the size of the shot, not the gauge of the round. You could have a 28 gauge rifled slug, which would be as big around as your fingertip. This was very small #9 shot, and your hubby was correct on the size.
Hubby says a 28 guage pellets are smaller then the tip of a pin needle 142 posted on 02/14/2006 11:39:03 AM MST by Mo1
8 shot ==> .09 inch or 2.29mm 9 shot ==> .08 inch or 2.03mm
More like the head of a pin
8 shot ==> .09 inch or 2.29mm
9 shot ==> .08 inch or 2.03mm
The gun is a 28 guage but that has nothing to do with the size of the shot. The shot shell size determines how big the pellets are. My bird hunting hubby says Cheney was probably using #9 shot for quail, which are small pellets, but there are a number of shells that can fit into a 28 guage. The higher the shot shell size the smaller the pellets.
