Yup and the energy to penetrate is smaller due to the smaller surface area of smaller shot..ORIGINAL: shocwave26
also take this into consideration. velocity and energy per pellet at diffrent yardage. rule of thumb is heavier shot such as #4 maintains more energy than a #6 in standard loads but in heavy shot a #6 retains as much as a #4 in copper or lead. so pellet penetration is a factor to consider at longer ranges. just my 2 cents. good luck with what you go with.
