My family was driving to denver last june and right on the wyo/col state line via
I-25, we stop and got to look at about 50 head of elk with about 10 bulls in the herd, never seen elk in that location before but was very happy to see them there. It gives prof that elk are doing great and expanding their range.
What does "gauge" mean anyway? As used here gauge means the number of round lead balls the same diameter as the inside of the barrel (aka the bore) that it would take to weigh one pound. It takes 12 lead balls the same diameter as a 12 gauge barrel to weigh a pound. The smaller 20 gauge would require 20 balls of that barrel diameter. The larger bore 12 gauge would require 12 lead balls of the bore diameter to weigh one pound.
In general the number of pellets in a shotgun shell...
