    20ga buckshot

    Anyone shooting buckshot through a 20? What's the maximum choke that can be used?

    most times the more open chokes are recomended but you can use any and all...... pattern and see what works best for you.
    see if you can find some #7 buckshot..they are about .22 cal rather that .312 so heaps more to fill pattern but not the same penertration...great for roos or goats.

    Range... I'd say 30 would be good. I've got some of the bigger 9 ball, thinking about using on pigs, so probably stick with those
