  • The best buckshot for deer hunting is Hornady Critical Defense 00 Buck, and Hornady Heavy Magnum 00 Buck. They are more powerful than most and are loaded with the Versatite wad system which increases the max effective range past that of other types of buckshot.

The most commonly produced buckshot shell is a 12-gauge, 00 buck shell that holds 8 pellets. Buckshot is generally used for two purposes: Self-defense and hunting medium to large game. For instance, loads of 12-gauge 00 buck are commonly available in 8 to 18 pellets depending on the lengths from 2 3/4″ to 3 1/2″.
