I'm a college student and funds are sometimes hard to get by. I recently obtained a H&K FB6 Shotgun and went to a gun show to pick up shells. I bought about 100 #00 Federal shells which was pretty expensive.

I wanted to know if someone could give me some advice on a good type of practice shell I can go plinker with at the range but not to pricey.

Plinking ammo can be about anything, including the promotional shells usually sold as game loads,dove loads,etc.They run as cheap as shells ever get...

These will work,if the weapon isn't terribly ammo sensitive. Some older semi autos need to be adjusted to cycle light ammo reliably. Check your 0wner's manual.
