A: We're working on adding this info to the site. The velocity of this Winchester Ranger 00 Buck ammo is 1145fps.

A: Saiga 12s are hit and miss. They often need parts replacement or tuning to reliably cycle various types of shells. However, once this has been accomplished, many Saiga 12 users find that low recoil buckshot such as this Winchester Ranger 00 Buck is reliable in their shotgun.

A: Winchester Ranger Low Recoil 00 Buckshot is loaded to the same velocity as the standard Ranger 00 Buck - it simply has one less pellet, 8 instead of 9. This reduced mass is what contributes to the lower recoil. Thus, the effective range is approximately the same as the standard load.

A: Recoil will be comparable, perhaps slightly lighter. The WL1200 has 9 pellets traveling at 1125fps, while the Ranger has 8 pellets traveling at 1145fps.

A: Properly stored in a cool, dry place, this ammo can last for decades.

A: Yes, this is one of our best deals on bulk defensive shotgun ammo.

A: In a non-reciprocating action, recoil is a function of weapon weight, projectile mass, and projectile velocity. Ammo manufacturers cannot dictate the weight of your firearm, so they must reduce the overall mass (weight or number of projectiles) or velocity in order to reduce recoil. This ammo has a lower muzzle velocity than some other 12ga 00 buckshot, but is still devastatingly effective.

A: Both low recoil and standard 00 buckshot from a 12 gauge shotgun will penetrate multiple interior walls, as will any load or bullet that will also reliably incapacitate someone who is intent to harm you or your family.

A: Recoil can be reduced by increasing the weight of the firearm, decreasing the mass of the projectile(s), or decreasing the velocity of the projectile(s). These Winchester 00 Buck shells have 8 pellets instead of 9, and are loaded to a lower velocity than some other types of buckshot, resulting in lower recoil.

Posted On: 9/27/11 By: Neil

A: Low recoil ammunition like this Winchester Ranger 00 buckshot is so named because the mass and/or velocity of the projectile(s) has been reduced - these shells have only 8 pellets instead of 9 like some other loads. While this does have a slight negative effect on terminal performance, the results of being shot with 00 buck are still devastating, and the reduced recoil may allow the shooter to be more effective.

Posted On: 9/27/11 By: Clark Hogan Jr.

A: Yes. It would be suitable for either purpose. However, for hunting, a more powerful load might be better if you're confident in your ability to deliver one well-placed shot. This is more ideal for law enforcement or self defense purposes, where fast follow-up shots might be vital.
