Triple BBB's

Do you guy's think steel BBB's will do the number on a yote or fox? Most of the county's where I live do not allow you to use a rifle. Looking for something to pass the time for next 2 months.

Alright on fox inside 30-35 yards not very good for yotes beyond 20-25 yards. Find some lead #4 buck or at least lead BB's but they're even a little light for longer shots on coyotes

Preacher thank for the info. 00 will spread 3" and to the right for every 10' out of an 18" cylinder bore. That's your standard 2 3/4 load. I will be shooting a 3'' load of #4 Buck out of a full choke 28" barrel. I think I will be able to smoke one out to about 60 yds or so, if not I will switch to copperplatted 1's.

Would any of ya'll recommend shooting #4 buckshot thru a xx full turkey choke, or do you think that is too tight a pattern?

I would not recommend it. It'll just give you erratic patterns and an insanely long shot string. Try your IC first.
say what?
