"Super Buck Lead Buckshot #T 8lb .200"I was going to try it but after shooting it for pattern I decided to go with a rifled slug and teh buckshot was too unpredictbale for my liking out of my shotgun. For Yotes I would reccomend using the Dead Coyote T shot.
I haven't done it because I have never owned a good shotgun until recently,I now have a cylinder 18.5" 870 that I might try to take a deer with using buckshot,I use a .444 from my blind,but if I can get close enough-like 10 yards from a deer while walking,I might use the shotgun.[/QUOTE
With state of the art buckshot ammo and matched chokes, 40 to 50 yard killing patterns are the norm.
Ballistic Products for 16 bore buckshot load data.I use it with a full choke tiypically on deer out of my 12 and 16 gauges. I prefer 00 but I can only find #1 for my 16 and I haven't been able to find a reciepe to reload for it. I also keep it in one of the two pumps I have for home defense, either that or a hot turkey load with 4 or 5 shot.
...only with older type soft lead pellet non-buffered loads like Wolf Brand.What buckshot/choke combinations did you find so unpredictable?
