    That's the 00-buck, sadly - still good stuff, but not #1 buck.

    I'm ok with it being 00. Ordered 15 boxes. And no, Ed, I'd already ordered before posting the link.

    Buckshot size does not mean what you think it does!


    A Federal #1B pellet is only .285" in diameter and 33 grains in weight. Barely 495 grains total . Fifteen #1B of the "nominal voluntary standard" .30" diameter would weigh over 600 grains.

    Are those pellet weight based on lead or copper? If your numbers are lead, then this Cu plated stuff would be lighter.
