8 Gauge Shot-Shells
Shot-Shells have been produced for over 2 centuries in many sizes, from 00 gauge to .360 gauge  and also in millimeters sizes.
For those not familiar with shot-shells the lower the gauge number the larger the size. A 20 gauge is smaller then a 16 gauge, a
16 gauge is smaller then a 12 gauge etc. A gauge is a unit of measurement in shotguns, determined by the number of lead balls the
size of the gun's bore  (inside barrel diameter) that can be produced out of a pound of lead.  A 20 gauge gun size has 20 balls per
pound, a 12 gauge has 12 balls, hence the smaller the gauge number the large the bore or size of the shell.
For the most part 8 gauge are no longer made in the USA for the general public, they are very limited to the industrial trade
for cleaning boilers etc.
Below please find 4 different Winchester Industrial Shot-Shells,
and 1 Winchester 8 Gauge  powder container.
We sell these "collectible cartridges" for display only, not for use in firearms.
DO NOT USE THESE IN A FIREARM! (see size comparisions below)
Information on above 8 gauge powder container
Gun powder samples are subject to a Hazmat rules, which cost up to or over
$15.00 extra to ship gun powder samples. But Shot shell cartridges are not
subject to the hazmat rules. So trying to keep down shipping cost, a few gun
powder producers packaged their product in 8 gauge shot shell. The cartridges
have no projectiles in them, they are "completely" full of gun powder.
