Biggest Buckshot
How big is the largest commercially available buckshot?

That is what caliber are the pellets and how much does each weigh?

i dont know if its diff per gauge of the gun but for a 20 gauge i beleive buckshot 2 is the biggest you can get.

is it good for a skinny 14 year old to start off with a 12 gauge?

May want to concider a 16ga or even a 20ga.My 15 year old daughter shoots a 20ga and handles it very well.If you are going to try deer hunting with it then definitly go with the 12ga.Just get a heavy one and it will reduce the felt recoil.
That I know of 000 buck is the largest size shot you can get.Not sure about the size but I believe it contains 9 pellets.More pellets as you go down.00 - 0 - #1 etc.This info is for 2 3/4 shotshells.You can look on any manufacturers(remington,winchester etc) website for specifics on size and number of shot.
