I was thinking of getting started coyote hunting and local reg's say I cant use shot larger then #4 buckshot. What sizes does buck shot come in and what is larger ? I have a bunch of OO in 3" shells for home defense as back up to my 9mm. Would my 30 06' be to much gun for a yote?

The lower the number the bigger the buckshot. IE. #4 is smaller than #1 which is smaller than 00 which is smaller than 000.

The copper plated buffered buckshot is the best patterning stuff for me.

#4 buck is 22 caliber balls. It will tear a coyote apart. I found that #2's are great for the yotes. Stops them real quick.

Scott are you only permitted to use buckshot in that area or could you use regular shotgun shot.
