At this point, you might be thinking, “He's using the words precise AND shotgun in the same sentence? Is this guy nuts?”
Well, that depends. I’m talking about whether a shotgun can be “precise” or not. We won’t discuss my sanity just yet. The potential precision of your shotgun depends on careful matching of your particular gun, choke tube (if applicable) and ammunition. And when I say careful matching, I’m not talking about specifying a brand of ammunition. I’m talking about specifying a brand, shot size, shell length, and velocity / power factor - basically all the things that uniquely define a particular box of shotgun shells.
