Could someone, in a detailed manner, explain the difference between buckshot, and mini buckshot?

Well I dont know about in detail, but the cartridge is the same size, but the little bearings are about half the size of the usual buckshot.

Isn't it supposed to have lighter recoil, too?

As buckshot goes down your pellets are larger mm but fewer in number. For example #1 buckshot are smaller but more of them than 0 or 00 buckshot.

Ever shot it?
Similar sized pattern?
Report as
Yes pattern is tighter with 00 simply cause there are less of them. I use 00 in thick brush and number 1 in more open fields.

Hold on though because 00 kicks more than #1 :)

Ahhh alright. That was my next question. Which do you prefer to keep at the ready for home defense purposes?
Report as
Lol either one would get the job done. If someone is breaking my door down I want to be loaded with 00. If someone is in my yard stealing my 4-wheeler I'm spraying him with #1. Covers wider area so I won't miss
Report as
Alrighty then. Would you compare #1 with a target load?
Report as
No for home defense stick with game loads. Target loads have less powder

As far as I know there's no mini buckshot. All shot sizes have a number. For instance I use #4 buckshot for coyotes, its about the diameter of a 22.

Hmm. Alright then. I was checking out all the things I could buy if I won the lottery, and saw cabelas advertising "mini buckshot", specifying it had lower recoil

Hang on, let me check it out. Be right back.
