    Why use O-Buck when there's OO-Buck and OOO-Buck?

    FYI, I keep my HD shotgun loaded with #4 Buckshot. It should have more-than-adequate man stopping power, and is less likely to tear up walls and furniture.

    But to answer your question, I haven't seen "O-Buck" on shelves for awhile either.

    I've never heard of it actually. Think it would be the same as #1 buck?

    o-buckshot is just slightly bigger than #1 buck.

    I've used #1 buck more than 0 & 00 buck for deer hunting. It covers HD purposes just fine as well ........... I have a slection of #4, #1, and 00-buckshot on hand for both hunting and HD.

    I have seen 0 buckshot at the local Wally-World here.....thier stocking up for the upcoming deer season. If it'll work on a deer, it'll take care of any thugs as well me thinks.

    Winchester still makes the "0" buck.
    As to why to use "0" buck, it depends on how your shot gun patterns it.

    I have a Valmet O/U 12GA x .308 that I use for hunting, it puts 5 to 6 "0" buck into a paper plate @ 40 steps. It does not like other brands or other sizes of buck shot.
    I also use it for home defense with my 870 riot gun, will work as well as "00"

    #1 Buck = .30 Cal
    "0" Buck = .32 Cal
    "00" Buck = .33 Cal

    2 3/4" 00 Mag = 12 Pellets
    2 3/4" standard "0" = 12 Pellets

    All the shells for my coach gun are 00 buck...plenty of firepower for any rude intruder(s).

    I used to have some; I think I had some in 20-gauge, though #1 is more common for that. Seems like I've seen it in 16-gauge, but since I only own 12's and 20's, I never had any. Don't know if it's still available.
    It's just enough smaller than 00 that you can actually get enough into a smaller-than-12-gauge shell to pattern well, but still carries well enough that the difference isn't notable.

    Stay safe,

    Why do I use 230 gr. for my .45acp?
    Because I can't find a source of 250 gr!
