Buckshot and Rifled Barrels

Carteach0 puts some buckshot down range through a rifled barrel to answer an age old question........ Good stuff. More here.

I have wondered about the spread of buckshot and other shot through a rifled barrel, mostly with the 45/410 handguns. I wish, however, that he had had a control of 3 buckshot rounds through a smoothbore for comparison. Or better yet, a bedsheet to actually show the patterns of smoothbore vs rifled.

I'd do it myself, but I don't have a rifled slug barrel, or land.

I hope the shots that didn't hit the target, didn't also go over the berm.

Thats also a lot futher away than bedroom door to front door in most homes.

Measure your most likely shooting point, and your most likely entry point of a BG and try that. with 00 buck, you get about a 2-3 foot pattern at 30 feet, 18 inch pattern at 20 and about 9 inch at 12 feet.

One wonders what the percentage of hits would be when show with a comparable shotgun (probably based on barrel length)from a smooth-bore shotgun.

It's an interesting video, but not terribly authoritative data.
