#3 buck’s lesser size means this shell is able to hold 20 pellets of shot (as opposed to nine pellets of 00 buck). That delivers twice as dense a pattern, which can be of great help if you’re hunting in the woods. Lightweight #3 buck pellets are also less likely to destroy a lot of meat – and, if you’re firing it indoors for home defense, less likely to break through several walls to potentially jeopardize innocent bystanders.
Winchester loads this shell’s shot with granulated buffering material. This substance absorbs a significant amount of energy during ignition, which helps to keep the shot pellets rounder and more aerodynamic. This promotes a denser pattern, and Winchester’s quality primers and powder promote reliable muzzle velocities and ballistic performance as well.
