"00 buck is a deadly round to what distance??"
We advise our people not to utilize it beyond 20 yards, to ensure that all pellets remain on target. Thats not to say that individual pellets do not have greater range. Obviously the shooter is not concerned about the liability issues associated with pellets missing a target, and obviously at that range its most likely that the officer was not struck by all of the discharged pellets.
