Hello fellas,

I bought a used like new vepr12 2yrs ago and have never had the chance to shoot it. I recently bought a house with land out of city limits and am excited to shoot a shoty for the first time!

I'm aware and looked at the 12ga dram eq chart on the sticky but I still cant pin it down to which ammo to buy. I've gone to wally world and the ammo boxes don't have all the info written on them.
I got an academy sports GC for Christmas im gonna use. What is the cheapest ammo that will cycle the vepr you guys recommend? I'm just gonna shoot paper. Perhaps a bulk pack?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

On what a V12 will cycle on the low end of the spectrum can vary a lot. I would try the Federal bulk over the Winchester Universal all day long. If you can find Remington hunting loads on sale in 6-8 shot I would buy them too. Wal-Mart used to carry Suprema that was excellent quality for the money, but I'm not sure if its imported anymore. I've had V12s that run the cheapest pump shotgun ammo right out of the box and others that wouldn't run it at all.

Try some Federal Multi-purpose, Winchester AA 1200 fps, 1250 fps, and 1300 fps. See what it runs with you firing it before you stock up on anything. How the weapon is supported can have a great deal to do with how it runs. The less you allow it to move back and forth the better it will run.

I'll look for the federal 1200 fps.
3inch is the right length?

All loads mentioned are 2-3/4" loads. The idea is to find out what the weakest loads are that will run reliably. For example, if it will reliably run 3 dram loads then you know it will most likely run anything that is stronger. A secondary finding might be to find the cheapest load that it will run with so you can train, practice, or simply enjoy yourself without it being so expensive.

OP,
Evlblkwpnz has a great video on “long gun technique” on the YouTubz. Look it up. Great stuff! ;)

+1 how the weapon is supported with weak loads matters a lot.
