efinitely the cutest shotshells ever made, Aguila’s 1 ¾-inch 12 gauge MiniShells are good for more than just filling up a Kel-Tec KSG and blazing away. The birdshot version is a serious—and fun—training tool for clay target shooting. A full inch shorter than a standard 12 gauge load, a Minishell holds 5/8 ounces of shot, fired at 1175 fps. That’s about the same as a .410 shell, making these the lightest kicking 12 gauge loads you can buy. They have a noticeably quieter muzzle blast as well. New for this year, Aguila will offer them in 8 and 9 shot in addition to the 7-1/2 loads. MiniShells also available in buckshot loads and slugs. Plus, the short shells will now be sold in 25-round boxes with a lid instead of the old 20-rounders that opened on the end and were almost impossible to refill.
