Weatherby SA-459 Turkey 20Gauge
When it comes to flawless performance in the field, you will never go wrong with the Weatherby SA-459 Turkey 20Gauge Semi Auto Shotgun. If features a unique dual valve system for a wide range of load versatility. This gives it excellence performance and function above and beyond any of its competitors. It also comes with a removable Picatinny receiver mount that allows you to mount an optic for rapid and accurate fire. It takes 20 lead balls of the diameter of a 20-gauge shotgun bore to equal one pound, while it only takes 12 lead balls of the diameter of a 12-gauge shotgun bore to equal the same weight. A 20-gauge shotgun is more suitable for hunting certain types of game or for some hunters because it recoils less, and the guns weigh less and may be smaller.
20-gauge shotguns are especially suitable for hunting game birds such as quail, grouse, turkey, and other game when using shot shells. A 20-gauge can also shoot slugs and buckshot and thereby become an effective deer-hunting gun. While shotguns loaded with slugs are usually less accurate than rifles, they often have better stopping power at short range, although this depends on the amount of propellant in the shell’s load.
In addition, 20-gauge shotguns have less recoil than 10-, 12-, or 16-gauge versions on average, and may be more desirable to those who want to experience less recoil for prolonged shooting. The lower recoil also makes a 20-gauge appropriate for younger (or conversely, middle-aged or elderly) shooters who may have a difficult time firing a larger shotgun. However, recoil is also dependent on the weight of the gun itself; for instance, a 4.5 lb (2.0 kg) 20-gauge can have more recoil than an 8 lb (3.6 kg) 12-gauge. This is widely considered a flaw in the design of so-called ‘youth’ guns.
