    Question Charles Daly 12 Guage

    I recently purchased a Charles Daly Pump 12 Gauge Shotgun. It says 3" Field on the barrel. Examining the barrel it's not rifled (no spiraling) and appears to be smooth (smooth bore?). I'm trying to figure out what type of shotgun shell to purchase for it. I assume 3", but not sure what type. I only several pistols and ARs, but this is my first and only shotgun. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks In Advance,
    fewtree

    Your shotgun can use either 2-3/4" or 3" shells. It is supposed to be a smoothbore. It is made to shoot shot. Anything from birdshot through buckshot. It can also use rifled slugs.

    The gun can take UP To 3" shells. 2-3/4" are standard and 3" are "magnum" if you will. To fire both has been the standard for decades. Shotguns are usually smoothbore -- they fire "shot," or lots of little or big pellets in a straight spray.

    Buy a copy of NRA's small picture and chart-laden The Basics of Shotgun Shooting paperback ASAP.
