Apart from availability, is there any downside to number 1 buckshot for SD?
I can't help but wonder why no. 1 buck isn't much more popular for SD. From my limited research it seems that on target no. 1 is as effective perhaps even more effective than 00 or 000. Even better off target as far as not penetrating walls and such.
I've wondered for years why so few manufacturers offer no. 1 in 12 gauge. Is there something I'm missing here? Is there a reason why 00 is the "standard?"
