Shot shell care

How to handle and store hunting shot shells.
  • productStore shotgun shells in the appropriate conditions: at 21º C (70º F) and 60% humidity, and preferably in a secure and ventilated place.
  • Respect protected species.
  • Do not leave spent cases in the field.
  • Whenever possible, use biodegradable wads.
  • Make sure the cartridge case is the same length as the shotgun chamber (70 or 76 mm. is the most common) before shooting. Non-matching lengths can be dangerous.
  • Use shot shells that have been loaded under C.I.P. standards in order to ensure the safety of the ammunition and protect the firearm.
  • If your shotgun is not proof tested for 1200 bar or kg/cm2, do not use shot shells that meet those specs.
