I'm trying to get a sense on how well buckshot works under various circumstances. I'd say we probably can all agree that at 25 yards on small "meat" hogs shot in the head- buckshot is okay. The gray area is on deer or hogs at say 35 to 45 yards. I'd like the good, bad, and ugly. Any feed back appreciated.
1. Killed 8 small deer, neck shots, all inside 40 yards, all dropped.
2. Shot mid-size buck, 42 yards, lung shot, ran off and never found.
3. Killed over 20 hogs at 25 yards with head shot, 00Buck, all dropped.
Things like that.
