    Just edited to add the Wolf ammo, which is also on sale.

    The only thing, if this is like some of the Wolf/Schonbeck buckshot I've purchased in the past, the unfired shell length is just a bit longer than normal and may reduce your overall magazine capacity by 1.

    Had a chance to run some of the S&B #4 buck shot today. It, similar to the Wolf, has a roll-crimp that makes the OAL a bit longer than normal. Thus, mag capacity is reduced from 7 to 6 in my shotgun. It is also a fairly smokey load. At ~15yds pellets penetrated a .75" thick hardwood board... at ~17 yards they did not penetrate.

    I also ran through some Fiocchi nickel-plated reduced-recoil 00-buck, it has a star crimp and 'standard' OAL for full capacity. It is not very smokey at all.
