    They both shoot the same distance.

    However, since the 12 ga sends more shot downrange, the pattern density is greater at any given shooting distance.

    So the effective range is greater with a 12 ga.

    Generally, I can hit doves at a high percentage out to 30 yards.

    With a 20 gauge, I'll not shoot at anything over 20-25 yds max.

    But if there zalotta doves, it doesn't matter, does it?.
