    I shoot 000 buck shot in my Taurus Judge and .45 long Colts. Can one of you tell me what caliber the buck shot balls are? I'm thinking .32 or .380 does that sound right to you? I have the 6.5" barrel which helps the pistol hold a tight pattern.

    Thank you very much for the chart. 000 buck shot is equal to 9mm slugs.

    Well, no, not exactly. While it is the same diameter, it is spherical, and bullets are cylindrical. A 9mm slug weighs, usually, either 115, 124 or 147 grains. A 36 caliber round ball weighs 70 grains.
