My gun does best with modified choke with 3" magnum 00 buckshot. REMEMBER!!! Buckshot is only really good out to about 40 yards, and you need to pattern your gun before hunting with it.

All my shotguns shoot buckshot best with 2-3/4" shotshells and a full choke. Other people's guns shoot best with 3" shells and a modified choke. Some people like 3" with a full choke or 2-3/4" with a modified. You just have to find which brand, length, and choke your gun shoots best.

My Mossberg 500 12 gauge shoots best withFederal 2-3/4"00 Buckshot and afull choke, but it patterns slightly to the right. Not much, but enough to notice. That's why patterning on the range is so important if you want the most out of your gun.

yep In my remington I use a modified choke and 3" 00 buckshot. I have used 2 3/4 in it also with the same choke tube and still had good results..
but I mainly stick to the 3"

good luck man!

Default RE: buckshot

I use #1 buckshot in my Remington 870 (more pellets per shell). I have tried both 3" and 2 3/4" shells and found that with a full choke and a 2 3/4" shell of #1 buck, it produces a great pattern. But then, this is from my 870 12GA.

Here's a list of Buckshot for comparision:
3" 000 Buck ----- 36 caliber --- imagine a 9mm handgun with all10 rounds hitting at once.
3" 00 Buck ------ 33 caliber --- 15 rounds hitting at once.
2 3/4" 00 Buck -- 33 caliber --- 9 rounds hitting at once.
2 3/4" #1 Buck -- 30 caliber --- imagine a very slow .30-30, .308, .30-06 with all 16 rounds hitting at once.
