Shotgun Damage?


Looking over the damage listed for Shotgun, it appears to be the damage for using "buckshot" ammunition. I don't see damage listed for "standard" rounds for a shotgun - have I missed something?
Shotguns firing solid slug ammo use their middle damage rating and suffer a -1 to hit at all ranges (no rifling). Thier range increment multiplies by 3.

So the TL-5 Shotgun in the book will do 2d6 damage, at -1 to hit, with a 9m range incrememnt.

A lot of stuff like this is covered in Traveller's Aide 1: Personal Weapons. Its worth picking up, especialyl at $5.
