The way a projectile performs when shot from a firearm depends on the bullet weight or shot size, the design of the projectile, the materials used to manufacture the projectile, and the type and amount of gunpowder. When selecting the ammunition for your firearm, remember the following.

  • It is critical that you use the correct cartridge or shotshell for your rifle, handgun, or shotgun.
  • You should also consider the species being hunted, the hunting environment, and the hunting regulations.
