So what is the realistic hazard range for a 12-bore? Yes, I know, "how fast does an aeroplane go?" and that stuff. The reason I ask is that my brother-in-law has seen a guy shooting in the field at the end of his garden, and shooting at rising birds with the Golf Course in the background. So ... take a typical 12-bore, with a typical cartridge. How far do the pellets go? 100m? 200m? What would you consider a realistic template?
