Ah, the old buck and ball load. I have used this load for deer in my 20 gauge smoothbore flintlock with great success.

I'd stick with the Dixie Tri-Ball.

Yep, I agree, its Dixie for me!



"This ain't your grandaddy's buckshot load!" (self quote)

Tri-Ball 3" 12 Gauge Buckshot by Dixie Slugs Co.

One shot, three .60 caliber holes to point of aim at 40 yards with a vent rib and a bead sight.

Interesting indeed! Here at Dixie we have been playing with a real Buck & Ball 12 ga 3 1/2" load.....10 #1 buckshot under a .600" round ball...buffered in a plastic wad and slow "Steel" powder.
It is an interesting load indeed, but does not have the sheer smashdown as our Dixie Tri-Ball 3" & 3" 1/2" loads
Regards, James

Yes, stick with what works.
The 12-gauge Supreme Elite® PDX1 features a distinctive black hull, black oxide high-base head and 3 pellets of Grex® buffered 00 plated buckshot nested on top of a 1 oz rifled slug. The result is the ideal, tight patterning personal defense load. The slug/buckshot combination provides optimum performance at short and longer ranges while compensating for aim error.
• 12 ga. Slug/Buck combo
• Load: 12 gauge 2-3/4" 1 oz rifled slug with 3 pellets 00 Buck- buffered

So its a try-ball with a little extra?

Maybe they are still mad about this? http://www.dixieslugs.com/tball2vs.htm
