  • new rabbit hunter

    Hi I'm pretty new to hunting and going to hunt rabbits tomorrow. I have a box of Winchester AA super handicap 7 1/2 will this work?

    It will work but #6 shot would be a little better.

        I would use a #6 2 3/4" low brass and wait a split second before taking a shot to let the pattern open up some (Modified). I hate to pick pellets out of meat.

            I kill turkeys with #8's.

            You can kill them with #4's, but I consider that overkill.
            Your #7.5's will work just fine.

                You neglected to say what gauge your shotgun was, but I will suppose either a 12 or 20, since these are the most popular gauges. Yes, your 7 1/2s will work fine for rabbits, also squirrels, quail, doves, and even ducks. I have killed a multitude of small game with 7 1/2 shot in a 16 gauge shotgun, and still prefer that shot size for just about any purpose smaller than geese or pheasant.
