How many pellets per ounce are there?
Not too many people know that the number of pellets per shell is governed by their size and their weight. The main idea is that the shot shell ammunition has a payload of between 3?4 and 1 1?2 ounces. Keep in mind that it takes about eight 00-buck pellets to make up a 3?4-ounce load. The more the payload weighs, the more recoil people will experience. It is important to know that recoil can also be increased with velocity. Needless to say, recoil has to be considered for a defensive gun.
