28 Gauge Shotgun Specifications
The 28 gauge shotgun fits 28 little lead balls inside each shell. Why? Gauge is a measurement of barrel diameter and determined by the weight of lead that can fit in the barrel. Just as a 12 gauge shotgun fits 12 spheres each weighing 1/12th of a pound in its barrel, a 28 gauge shotgun fits 28 spheres each weighing 1/28th of a pound. Gauges may seem counterintuitive because higher gauges correlate to less power and recoil. The smaller gauge you have, the less lead balls are shot with each trigger pull, but the heavier each lead ball is. Historically, gauge was a measurement used for large double rifles loaded with black powder during the 1880s.
28 Gauge Shotgun Ballistics
The 28 gauge shotgun is a popular firearm, but not as common as 12 gauge shots in the United States. 28 gauge shotguns are popular for shooters who want to avoid the heavier weight and intense recoil of larger gauge shotguns.
