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.

Buckshot isn't even legal in MN for Deer

We can only use a slug in our shotguns here in MN.

Never used buckshot for hunting. But rather than this I used guns and ammo which is well for 100yards of shooting.
