Shotguns are the most versatile firearms on the market. They can be used for competitions of all kinds, for home defense, and hunting almost any animal in the United States. The difference all lies in the ammunition you choose for the job. At Ammunition Depot we carry all popular calibers and have a wide selection of buckshot, birdshot, and slugs. We also carry some more exotic mixtures for the most discerning shotgunners. We sell by the box, or you can always buy Bulk Shotgun Ammo in bulk, so you always have the right amount on hand for the task.

How many shells can a shotgun hold?

Shotguns vary in capacity depending on the type of action they use and how many barrels they have. There are single shot break-action, double barrels, and pump-action or semiautomatics. Because of that, capacity can vary from as low as one shell to as many as 10 or more.

How old do you have to be to buy shotgun Ammo?

Shotguns are considered long guns in the general classification. This means they’re under the same regulations as rifles in regard to age restrictions. Ammunition is restricted under those same classifications, so the age to purchase Bulk Shotgun Ammo is 18 years old — the same as purchasing a shotgun.

What is the best shotgun ammo?

Shotgun ammo is incredibly diverse. It can be used for everything from small games to self-defense. The best ammo for a shotgun will vary depending on that use. Small game loads are best for hunting waterfowl and handling rodent issues, whereas rifled slugs are best for most defensive situations. However, individual situations will vary, so the best shotgun ammo depends on your circumstances and preferences.
