    Perhaps some NW deer hunters may find this development of interest. The Georgia firm, Trulock Chokes, has introduced a new approach to buckshot with their Boar Blaster choke for 12 gauge shotguns.
    It appears to combine an extra-long parallel conical section with 5 parallel steps from bore diameter to a full choke constriction:

    There have been many advancements in buckshot including new wads, dedicated chokes and even pellet size.

    I wonder if a standard barrel can be machined to accept these chokes?

    I rem-choke all my 870s barrels. Talking a dozen over the years. Only one would not be rem-choked to to wall thickness but it could have been tru-choked.

    I've used roseactionsports.com so far

    I'm going to give Velzey a try here soon

    True but when generally talking about 12ga buckshot '00' is expected as the standard unless otherwise stated.

    Joe you are totally wrong.

    Buckshot=lead shot. It's always been that way
    Shot shells=steel shot shells

    Where did you come up with that idea? TV?

    I have to disagree - shot shells covers any shell filled with multiple projectiles.

    Lead and steel shot never even cam up...

    I don't watch TV but I've shot shotguns and grew up around them.

    The people I know don't say "double aught buckshot" they just say buckshot.

    If we are talking about game hunting then it comes down to pellet size and metal they are made of and the amount of powder they have in them.


    Shotgun shell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shotgun_shell#)

    BuckshotEdit
    Larger sizes of shot, large enough that they must be carefully packed into the shell rather than simply dumped or poured in, are called "buckshot" or just "buck". Buckshot is used for hunting larger game, such as deer ("buck" being a word for a male deer, hence derivation of the name). Buckshot size is designated by actual diameter or (traditionally) by letter or number, with smaller numbers being larger shot. Sizes larger than "0" ("aught") are designated by multiple zeros. "00" ("double-aught") is the most commonly used size.

    Here is the definition of a Shotshell or Shotgun Shell.

    I'm guessing you are being condescending because you are totally wrong and just don't realize it. Nice way to open mouth and insert foot. Kudos.

    A bit of "Western" gun lore:

    Buckshot sizes were under different system in the West of the late 19th century.

    Nominal Western buckshot pellet size comparison to Eastern / current sizes:

    Western #1 = Eastern 0000B = .380" (for10 gauge)
    Western #2 = Eastern 000B = .360"
    Western #3 = Eastern 00B = .330"
    Western #4 = Eastern 0B = .320"
    Western #5 = Eastern 1B = .300"


    Remington Buckshot rounds were marked with both Eastern and Western buckshot sizes into the nineteen thirties.

    Lawrence shot marketed bagged buckshot, using Western sizes, as late as 1979.

    To be honest, I didn't click. It seems funny and or contrary though to screw any device into the end of a 28" barrel (which that screenshot seems to be), which is in all likelihood a modified or full choke to begin with, and expect some screw on dealybob to improve buckshot (#4-000) patterns.
    I remember back in the day, I had a 20" barrel (ghost sights) on my fighting rig.. a long magazined 870. The essentially cylinder bore barrel had a proprietary, integral and indiscernible to or from the barrel (it was part of the barrel) had some sort of barrel-in-profile type of "choke".. though it was still cylinder bore.
    That thing would put regular duty slugs into 2" and 9 count buck (regular 00 buck) well into the scoring rings of a B-27 at fifty yards.. all day.. long.

    There are many misconceptions about buckshot ammo, effective choke constrictions, effective range and effectiveness on large game.

    Even the little 20 bore can do the job:

    Here is an interesting video of a short range buckshot strike on a Florida buck taken from a tree stand with 20 gauge Federal #2B (18 pellet .27 caliber). Forward to 3.26 on the video, for the takedown. This video also shows the type of close cover that is normal for the coastal South.

    That pattern had two flyers, which is not really that impressive, in my opinion. Here is a pattern that a guy shot using the exact same Federal Buckshot load, but with a Patternmaster choke tube instead. The pattern is about the same, and there are no flyers:
