Never hunted with buckshot for deer, have it for home defense. I would think modern sabot slug ammo would make buckshot obsolete for deer hunting. Off a bench, my Rem 870 slug barrel and scope will shoot 2-3"groups at 100 yds, pretty good for a slug gun.
I agree with HM
never used buckshot always used slugs heard so many wounded deer stories using Buckshot I never tried it my shotgun also shoots slugs very well at 100 yards
