|#1 buck is really hard to find. I fired over 40 rds of these this month while comparing to Rem 9 pel 00 buck.
It has noticably more lead weight with slightly more felt recoil. From an 18.5" Benelli Nova, it gave about 1/2" wider shot pattern at 5 yds @ 1270-1290fps, but with 7 more holes! Upon further research, I read that you can expect 30% more wound trauma compared to 00B, with less chance of over penetration. I would recommend both rounds, but I keep #1B loaded for HD.|
