    Simple, pressure tested, high performance buckshot loads...

    ...from page 35 of this IMR loading manual. Eight pellet 00B, buffered and pressure tested with a choke friendly pellet stack pattern.

    So does the exact buffer matter? It says BP SDC in that load data....would BPI original or #47 work? I'd like to try a high velocity load to see how my shotguns like it and maybe use it for coyotes and antelope.

    dk17hmr if you get an antelope with your own buckshot loads that needs to be a story in the hunting magazines. Will give the shooting in the next county boys a fit.
