S&B actual #2 Buck .270 caliber pellet load
Review by Trav
Unlike other manufactures who tell slight industry lies.....cough cough fibs that is, S&B will not practice this nasty industry practice and instead offers you the customer and actual 20 gauge buckshot worthy of us in self defense shotguns or for hunting. Industry standard 20 gauge load in 2 3/4" inch or shorter shells for #2 Buck size pellets ( .270 cal ) has always been layers of 3 pellet per layer over felt wad with or with out buffer plastic grains. 12 pellets of #2 buck is 7/8 oz standard 20 gauge load and similar in felt recoil to a 7/8 oz AA Trap load. Other manufactures offer a so called #1 Buck loaded 9 pellets but oddly those pellets stacked in 3 pellet layer.........mnnnnnnn .30 caliber wont even fit 3 pellets to a layer in a 20 gauge shell hull over a fiber wad even.....what could those manufactures mean by #1 Buckshot then?????? Well that's the gimmick y'all they can use .285 caliber pellets and by Industry laws it's allowed to be called #1 or even #00 buck due to a little + or - 3 calibers per industry variance limits. So all the other brands loading a 9 pellet #1 Buck at 1400 FPS ......Shhhhhhhhh it's not really #1 Buck at all it's basically #2 Buckshot pretending to be #1 Buckshot and why sling 9 #2 Buckshot when you can sling 12 of them at a slightly slower 1150-1175 FPS velocity.
So remember if it stacks in layers of 3 pellets to a layer in 20 gauge it's #2 Buckshot........don't fall for lies make them tell you the truth with your wallet. After all it's only fair to pay for whats truthful and not just industry gimmicks. Never did hear of no #00 load in 20 gauge and there never will be.
