I personally know deer hunters who routines take deer at 100 yards with a 12 ga using both OO buck
Routinely takes deer at 100 yards with 00buck? Really? Sounds like a bad plan ...... .33" 54gr 00Buck has a BC of .071 and an ititial velocity of around 1300 f/sec ..... by 100 yards, it is well below 800 f/sec ...... how big would that pattern be, I wonder?

.33 cal roundball @800 f/sec (about 75 ft/lbs of energy!) does not even sound like a good idea for deer, even if one of them manage to hit the animal somewhere important. A field point arrow out of a compound bow would have more energy, and probably penetrate better .....
