It all depends on the gun you are shooting....ive always used teh remigton 11-87...full choke--copper plated 3 in. 00 buckshot worked the best putting 8-10 pellets in a 20" x 20" target at 50 yards..lead 00 did not work nearly as well as copper plated..recently i bought a winchester supreme over/under...put the top barrel full n bottom modified and that gun put 9-11 pellets in about a 12 in. spread at 50 yards...that was also copper plated 00...lead worked good but it didnt have the tight pattern like copper plated just have to try different rounds and different chokes i patterned both guns with every type of buckshot i could htink of until i found what shot the best...

I agree with NJDeer. Guns and loads perform differently. You would be better served if you tried a few different chokes (perhaps start with full) and different loads (some will argue that #1 or 0 buck kills better that 00). Do some experimenting.

Buckshot... cylinder bore or improved cylinder. Try it. That is why riot guns come that way.
