Hello, I'm not exactly sure what to buy for shells. I own an 870 Police magnum but am not only concerned with HD but would eventually like to hunt (with a different shotgun of course). The problem is is that I don't know what application each type of shotgun shell should be used for. For example what do you use #4 bird shot for? Is it just for small birds or can you shoot water foul with it as well? What would you use for squirl? What about deer? See what I mean. I have no clue.

And then, what is the tactical application of each load? I know this is alot to get into but if someone could provide a link or reference that might be able to help me out I'd very much appreciate it.
