It truly isn't.

That premium cost Black Aces buckshot is shown by the shot from 20 yards to perform no better than the cheapest buckshot currently available. Did we not expect it to fire at all?

If you don't care for me saying that it performed no better, that's fine. We can argue if a premium cost buckshot should spread. The answer is no, but we can debate that.

But it is a point that will prove valuable to people considering purchasing the Black Aces buckshot vs Rio//Sterling/Fiocchi/Winchester.

# 4 Buck - for home defense - after 'extensive' - "personal" testing.

I get about the same or better pattern with cheap S&B 00 buck at 20yds
S&B uses regular lead balls without a shot cup, just a wad.
I would say regular Remington buckshot does better.
My HD shotgun is loaded with flitecontrol #1 buck, with two Remington "managed recoil" 00buck out of the mag first.
I'd take a 25yd shot with either, without thinking twice.
