Butch-M Posted February 6, 2006 Share Posted February 6, 2006 I have a few buckshot questions. I've been asked to participate in a research situation where it MAY be called for under certain narrow circumstances. Is the copper coating on some buckshot heavy enough to prevent lead fouling in a rifled barrel? What do you think the results of launching buckshot out of a rifled barrel would be? Is one brand or load better than another? I'm trying to determine if I could carry some buckshot shells in my pocket while working with my rifled barrel w/optics ... and just switch shells in a hurry out in the field. OR ... predetermine the need for buckshot and switch to my smoothbore barrel (or another shotgun.) If it seems like a possible option ... I'll buy a bunch and pattern it through the rifled barrel; otherwise I'll bag the idea. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
