I was just wondering if anyone on the forum was aware of the answer?How big is the largest commercially available buckshot?
That is what caliber are the pellets and how much does each weigh?
Please tell us the rest of the story. What gauge shotgun were you using?i tried these tri ball things and wasnt pleased. I took a 50 yard shot at a doe and almost lost it. one ball missed the deer, one was just under the skin on the shoulder blade, and the other one lucky enough hit the lung and heart. I myself dont like them or buck shot in general. Just me though. Its seems like too big of a chance to injure the deer.
I understand you folks up in Maine occasionally shoot a few moose each year. I have personally seen the Dixie Terminator 12 gauge round penetrate just as deep in a test medium as a .416 Rigby factory round (Federal brand) loaded with 400 grain Nosler Partition bullets. The Dixie round also blew a bigger hole! The Terminator amounts to a .73 caliber rifle with a 730 grain hard cast, heat treated bullet at 1200 fps. The Terminator was designed from the ground up as modern day version of the late 19th century ammo used in British 12 bore rifles.You could be right RMc, but I still prefer the biggest buckshot of them all, called a slug. LOL
The slug will bring down any Buck Shot, Get It. LOL
