After much anticipation, Winchester Varmint X now includes Shot-Lok Technology in a new shotshell load developed specifically for hunting predators. The popularity of Shot-Lok Technology in other Winchester products such as Long Beard XR and Rooster XR rolled seamlessly into what is now one of the most devastating shotshell products available for long range shots on coyotes, foxes and more.

Shot-Lok Technology includes a liquid gel that surrounds the pellets in the shot cup and then hardens. The shot then launches from the barrel nearly perfectly round for extremely tight, long-range patterns. The new Varmint-X shotshell load is available in 3-inch, 1½-ounce plated BBs traveling at 1,300 feet per second (fps). At 40 yards, expect more than 12 inches of penetration along with devastating knockdown power.

Field shotshells are used for hunting, while target shotshells are used to break clays.

Field loads are generally considered to cover shot sizes 6 all the way up to size T and include all of the buckshot sizes. Target shotshells generally start at shot size 7, and end at shot size 9. Of course, there are exceptions. Smaller shot sizes - such as size 10 - may be used to hunt certain game birds such as quail. It all depends on what you are hunting.

As there is much overlap in application of field shotshell/game combinations, when choosing your field load be sure to consider your game as well as the distance you are shooting from, and the payload of the round. The shot size of all products can be found in the description of each product along with the weight of shot loaded in the round.

The caliber of shotguns is measured in terms of gauge (U.S.) or bore (U.K.). The gauge number is determined by the weight, in fractions of a pound, of a solid sphere of lead with a diameter equal to the inside diameter of the barrel. So, a 10 gauge shotgun nominally should have an inside diameter equal to that of a sphere made from one-tenth of a pound of lead. By far the most common gauges are 12 (0.729 in, 18.5 mm diameter) and 20 (0.614 in, 15.6 mm), although .410 (= 67), 32, 28, 24, 16, and 10 (19.7 mm) gauge also exist.
