Less experienced shooters might give you a funny look if you mention #1 buckshot around them. It is kind of a scarce commodity in the shotgun world, with .30” diameter pellets instead of the ubiquitous double-aught’s .33” diameter.

This 12 Gauge shotshell by Sellier & Bellot is loaded with 1 1/8 ounces of #1 buck, which comes out to an even dozen pellets. Smaller but more numerous pellets equal a denser spread, yet still a forceful one. With its muzzle velocity of 1,214 fps, this shell’s 486 grains worth of projectiles would inflict nearly 1,600 ft lbs of muzzle energy. That’s more than the minimum amount of energy recommended for hunting elk!

Such small buckshot wouldn’t suit you well on an elk hunt, however. It’s best equipped for taking a whitetail in an area full of brush and branches that could deflect a rifle’s bullet off course. It’s also a prime candidate for home defense, especially given a smaller buckshot pellet’s greater tendency to stop when it hits a wall.

Based in the Czech Republic, Sellier & Bellot is one of the oldest continually operating companies of any kind. With nearly two centuries of experience they have mastered the art of casting hard, spherical, and accurate shot. Their wad continues cupping that shot after it has exited the barrel to promote a tighter spread far downrange. The Old World manufacturer’s propellant burns fast and consistently, their primers are to be depended upon, and their hulls and brass heads are both hardy.

And while we know this is a minor touch, we always love a shotshell with a clear plastic tube. It gives you a chance to say “bye bye” to your shot before you lodge it into something.
