How a shotgun shell is fired

A shotgun used for shotshells features a smoothbore barrel; there is no rifling inside. Instead, when a shotshell is fired, all of the tiny round pellets travel down this smooth bore towards the target. The roundness or degree of sphericity of each pellet determines how the pellets will fly when released from the shell.
