4 buck is pretty useless nowadays, waterfowl hunting requires nontoxic shot with a maximum size of T shot, reloading for waterfowl isnt cost effective by the time you purchase all the components...ie the shot buffer, nontoxic shot, heavy wads...etc. If you want to load your own field loads for skeet/trap, dove, squirrels, quail, rabbits, pheasent, ......its very cost effective.

Let's put it this way. If you smack an intruder with a load of #4 Buck in the confines of your average suburban home, he's not going to mimicking Kevin Bacon on "Animal House" crying...."Thank you sir, may I have another!"

Well sure, if you hit him from across the room with 1 oz of #9 shot he is most likely going to expire. The problem with #4 Buck is it lacks individual pellet energy. If you only hit him with a couple of pellets, he is gonna be pissed. OO buck has MUCH more energy/pellet and much more likely to incapacitate from a less than ideal hit.

I have taken Coyotes at over 65 yards from only one pellet of OOO buck

From across a living room it isn't going to matter. You're either going to hit him, or else you're going to miss. The spread of any shot load at 15 feet is only a few inches regardless of barrel length, shot size, or choke.

What we really need is someone willing to suit up in a BP vest and catch different loads, then we can get a hands on comparison........
