    Try the Challenger slugs out of your smoothbore barrel. I find they are accurate in my gun but every gun has it's own likes and dislikes.

    Lots of good slug loads out there that won't drain your wallet. BTW when I say slugs I am talking about rifled slugs.
    Buckshot is not my choice either. Like most things, there can be a use for it and of course if someone is going to use it out of it's effective range then all bets are off.

    Buckshot, does help to feed a lot of coyotes and other scavengers when they find the dead deer , after they run off wounded and die later because some hunters always want to stretch the range and hope they get lucky.

    I agree. The last deer I skinned out had a total of 10 buckshot pellets just under the skin starting behind the front shoulder going back the rear hind quarter on both sides indicating to me that it was shot at and hit twice,neither one of which was lethal. Obviously,they were old wounds. I was NOT the least bit impressed.

    If you found pellets under the skin like that it's a sign that it's the fault of the Hunter/Shooter, NOT a problem with the ammo. Buckshot will kill a deer very effectively, when used within it's limitations.

    Yessir,I agree. Hunters using buckshot seem prone to vastly under estimate it's effective range and ballistics. They also tend to use buckshot in slug barrels which should never be done because they won't pattern properly as noted by another poster here. It's been my experience after many decades of shotgunning and also appears to be conventional wisdom that buckshot should be only used in "choked" field barrels,rifled slugs should only be used in smooth bore barrels and sabots should only be used in rifled slug barrels.

    I have some brenneke rottweil 3” 1 3/8 oz slugs. Have t shot any yet. Looks like they might kick a bit.
    The ones I tried before were 1oz super x And they didn’t pattern well at 50y
