I think it's in the general section of the regs. ETA: Yep.
Texas has no restrictions that I’m aware of. I’ve seen posts on the Texas varmint forums of 00 buck.
There is no way to make sense of a restriction like that. Just another aggravation to put up with. You can safely shoot a coyote with #4 but #1 will carry far enough to kill Mrs. O'Leary's cow? Ridiculous.
Ok so I was confused a bit on the wording "Buckshot" so I looked up shot sizes.
#4 "Buckshot" is .240" diameter and what I thought #4 was #4 shot and some fool put Buck in front of the word Shot for some reason.
Not the case as #4 shot size is .13" diameter do not confuse the terms I suppose.
Shot size chart.
Now backbore or overbore to the shotgun could increase the pellet count in your group.
I was surprised when testing loads that a larger choke actually made the steel shot group tighter and then I tested it on some lead loads in different guns I have and my shortest barrel actually grouped tightest.
I have shot #4 turkey max load 3 1/2" 12 gauge load at 40 yards and it groups very tight lets a lot of light through a 55 gallon barrel.It was a light single shot shotgun, it brigs tears to your eyes. And when the water clears you look to see where that mule came from that kicked you.
