The effectiveness of buckshot (in my experience only #4's), is something that I have been aware of for many years now. I concur that if one states that it is an effective method of taking deer, that statement will garner many negative comments...mostly from people who have no experience with that method. I have however, been unaware of the advances in buckshot that you have posted and will likely not buy any of those rounds inasmuch as I stocked-up on my favorite of three-inch twelve gauge number 4 buckshot years ago and will have enough in reserve to preclude spending any money on such, in my limited lifetime. But, the younger guys should do some serious consideration on what has been posted here.
