Slugs Or Buckshot For Bear Or Hog?

Buckshot is quite lethal but it does not have as much stopping power as a slug. Sure if you hit something in the head with buckshot, it's going down, right there, but on a center of mass shot unless you hit the spine, buckshot isn't stopping anything big as a bear very quickly.
There is virtually zero advantage on multiple pellets versus a single slug at ranges ten yards or under. Even with a very open choke the pellets don't really start spreading until about 15 yards. Essentially if you are going to miss with one, you'll miss with many at that range.
