While many hunters know a little bit about shotgun gauges, I think that most people would likely agree the subject can be really confusing. That's perfectly understandable because the way shotgun gauges are classified is counterintuitive at first glance.
For that reason, I’m going to discuss the ins and outs of shotgun gauges in detail in this episode. I'll go over the history of shotshells, how they got their naming convention, compare and contrast some of the more popular shotgun gauges (the 12 gauge vs 20 gauge in particular), and provide some recommendations on the best uses for each.
