I read in general that buckshot isn't ideal for hogs. But I found a place called nwcp who loads hardcast buck in sizes Tb-000b these are hi-velocity loads 1250-1380 fps there kinda pricey perhaps 18$ per box of 5 rd. They are rolled crimped. So im thinkin there worth the price over federals bucjshot which is 1100 fps for 18 pellet 00b. There's is a 00b 16 pellet 1250 fps hardc ast. They say the less pellets pattern better which I believe. So hoe do y'all think hardcast 000b will work compared to slug and dead coyote 00b ? This is for my 10 Ga.

I think they would work real good but I can only imagine the recoil of the 10 guage load you describe. I would think a slug would be a better choice and again the recoil....you the man. Not sure who sells 10 guage slugs. BTW, for hunting, or self defense for that matter, I would not be concerned with the price - buy the best.

Its not bad like every one thinks you just have to learn to shoot it. I've shot a spr 20 Ga that kicked worse. It just a slow push. I've shot it from siting down prone standing etc. If you get the chance to shoot one you'll be calling every one a puss who says it kicked lick a mule. Btw a mules kicks has 1-3k ft lb recoil force :) lol. Federal makes slugs. But the hole point of a scatter gun is to scatter

Mark me down as a buckshot believer. Only problem with it is keeping the range short enough to assure the majority of the pellets strike the critter. Most of the makers work on building a better patterning buckshot load.

But when I know the shots are going to be in the thickest of the thick, the range under 20 yards, and a good chance the deer are spooky... I tend to pick buckshot.

Well my 10 Ga poi at 20-40 he'll probably farther is zero. My maverick 88 poi is always 2 ft low 1 ft right even with different chokes. So I dont use it

I would use the Tri-Ball load from Dixie Slugs. Don't know if they make it in 10 gauge though.

Lee has a OO buckshot mold. I wonder how really hardcast buckshot would pattern? Should be better as it wont deform as much. Soft buckshot comes out of the barrel looking like little pyramids. I would shoot a hog at close range with OO.
