    00 Buckshot Range Report - Mil. Surplus, Rio, Zombie Max, Herters Slug

    I love my shotgun. I have only one but my Mossberg 500 is probably my favorite gun. I've only been shooting since November 2013 so bear with my inexperience.

    I tested all the types of rounds I had (including price I paid and where):






    Military Surplus 00 Buckshot (green shells) - Cabelas 2.8 for 5 rounds

    Herter's Slugs - Cabelas $6/10 slugs (woohoo great price on sale)
    The first 2 shots up top where from 5 yards and the last 3 aiming at center of mass were at 25 yards. Yes I'm a bad shot

    PMC One-Shot High Velocity 00 Buckshot (red shells) - Cabelas $3 for 5 rounds

    Rio 00 Buckshot (not the low-brass one) - Cabelas $2.7 for 5 rounds

    Hornady Zombie Max 00 Buckshot - Cabelas $12 for 10 rounds plus one that I found on the range floor and picked up

    Next post shows 75ft with Zombie max as well as the 28" Mossberg 500 these were all shot out of.

    Mossberg 500 28" Barrel. Having only shot it once before (bought new) months ago I had my very first experience cleaning a shotgun. 'Twas quite dirty in the barrel but everything else just needed a rub down with froglube.

    I love Federal LE Tactical, but I haven't tried some of the ones you mentioned.

    That is one that I haven't fired before. I've fired the Remmington slugs from Wallyworld and wasn't too impressed. I'll try and pattern some flare shots (if I can find some) next

    Any other recommendations for commonly found shotgun ammo? (and list intended/desired use)
