Sounds like a good pattern with the 000. 6 000 in a deers side at 50 will put him in the dirt.

I hunt with buckshot for coyotes with either my 12 gauge benelli semi auto with a patternmaster shooting federal powershok 3 inch #4 buckshot or my 12 gauge browning bps with a dead deer choke shooting remington 3 inch #4 buckshot. Both guns will pattern at least 5 to 6 pellets of either gun/ load in a 10 inch circle at 60 yards. When shooting a grown buck or doe deer��behind dogs I prefer either of my two shotguns with a Patternmaster shooting Winchester 3 inch #1 buckshot either gun will give me 6 to 7 pellets in a 10 inch circle at 50 yards. Still hunting for deer I like to use my above browning bps with a Trulock extended skeet choke tube shooting federal premium 3 inch with flight control. I get at least 6 pellets in a 10 inch circle at 50 yards. Dave

Nice looking setup you got CM. I really like the traditional style sling you made.

I shot some Winchester 3 inch #1 Buck with 24 pellets today... From exactly 30 yards, the factory modified choke put 12 in a 12 inch circle, with the other 12 in 24 inches... With a factory full choke, had 16 in 12 inches and 8 in 24 inches. With a Primos Tight Wad .660 turkey choke, had 21 of 24 inside of 12 inches, 2 pellets within 16 inches, and 1 that was unaccounted for.

I've now tested 000, 00, and #1 buck. I've found what my gun likes with all 3 varieties...

If you had MY gun, would you prefer to shoot your deer with 10 of 10 000 pellets, 12 of 15 00 pellets, or 21 of 24 #1 pellets? I have NEVER shot at a deer with a shotgun, and thought about trying one this coming fall. I've already got about $60.00 in buckshot test! What say you?

Buckman I think you pose a good question and I have not had that real world test yet but after watching some balistic gellatin tests on you tube with 000 buck I was really glad my gun liked that load.

This is my humble opinion I would hunt with the 000 buck if in a tree stand setting. Now if I was shooting at deer running full throttle give me the 3 inch #1 buck no doubt.

I love that sling. It's awesome.



Yep. I know all kinds of good stuff that sling is good for also. I've even got the matching dog leash.

I pour my own buck shot and use it all the time. We don't hunt deer with it here in Indiana though but I can use any kind I want, so long as it's 00 or #4 buck.

That's you're choice. I prefer bigger pellets. All 00 or 000 for me. Are all those patterns at 30? if so, I would go with the 000. I know you said what the 000 did at 50, did you test the others at 50? When patterns start to fall apart, they do it quickly. 10 yards or even 5 yards can show a big difference. You seem to have 3 great 30 yard patterns. I think I would let the 50 yard patterns decide which I would shoot.
