    '00'? That's right, I want to know how you pronounce '00' buckshot. No matter where you live.....how do you say '00' buckshot? Spell it out for me in black and white if you can. Double ought? Double awt? Double ott? Inquiring minds want to know. Remember....I'm from Arkansas, so pictures would be welcomed as well.

    Have always called it "double ought". Never thought about how to spell it before.

    Well, I just might be writing a book...that's why I kinda wanted to know how the spelling would go. That's the way I'd do it though.

    "Double ought" since I have been in Florida . . . . it was "dubble awwwt" when I was in Alabama.

    From dictionary.com:

    Ought = "zero, cipher," a cipher (0); zero. Varient of aught. (q.v.). Aught can also mean zero so...


    The correct spelling is either "double ought buckshot" or "double aught buckshot".

    Here in NE Florida we pronounce it "double ought", but in parts of Georgia I've heard it referred to as "awwt-awwt".

    awww come on RamRod, I'm from Arkansas also and the best way to do that is switch to a different kind of buckshot you can spell.

    Birdshot.

    Slugs. See! Easy as pie. LOL.

    I've hear some old-timers in the south refer to it as "double naught."

    I thnk that's also how they said it on Beverly Hillbillies when Jethro wanted to be a double naught spie like James Bond.

    I'm from FL and most people there say double ought. That may or may not be correct, since we often refer to a .22 as a deuce deuce.

    I don't know what they say here in KS since buckshot is illegal to hunt with for some unknown reason. Gotta use slugs here.

    "Double Ought"

    When I go to the horse races in the midwest, my bet tickets show zero as "ought".

    I like the "Jethro" spelling ... "naught"

    I've always called it "Double-O" or "Triple-O", etc. "Ought" just sounds funny.
    "A well-educated electorate, being necessary to the continuance of a free state, the right of the people to keep and read books shall not be infringed."
    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?
