    .395 round ball and a snootfull of 2400 or H110 for a tri-ball load will devastate most things near you. If you're reloading for it, that is.

    You should be fine.

    I reload my own 3” shells with 5 pellets of 00 buckshot using Hodgdon H110 powder. I shoot them through my Mossberg 500 with a full choke 24” barrel. All five pellets stay within 8-9” at 20 yards.

    They look just fine. BTW how far do they penetrate? 12"? Less? Unless they penetrate 12" they are a novelty.

    My daughter shoots them through her smoothbore Enfield with no problems- they produce about a 3" group at 25yd through that thing, lol.
    As far as performance- I sure wouldn't want to be on the receiving end. They generate a fair amount of recoil.

    I run stuff like that through an old 50s Steven's 22-410 no issues.

    I knocked off 5 for 5 woodchucks last summer with a box of those, in my .410 Enfield. At veggie garden distance, they were all DRT.

    One, I should add, took a pellet to the jugular and sprayed a fine red mist all over the tomatoes...
