Shooting With Steel Shot
When shooting within 40 yards, remember:
- Use a more open choke—improved cylinder or modified.
- Use a larger size shot—3s instead of 4s; BBs instead of 2s for equivalent energy.
- Pattern your shotgun—determine the best loads for your gun, choke, target species, and shooting distances.
- Learn your personal sight picture and trigger timing by shooting crossing shots at clay targets thrown like birds in the field. Practice, then practice more!
