Most likely in a .32cal with a patch.

Is it lead or steel?

its lead, wouldn't .330 be too large for .32 cal I know the .320 will work with a thin patch.

The price he charged you for buckshot was EXCELLENT. Your problem was asking for BUCKshot. You should have asked for #7 1/2 (or #6) lead shot. It comes in 25# bags and will last a while unless you do a lot of bird shooting. If he charges for the 25# bags like he does the 5# bags, get it at that shop.

00 buckshot is the standard for deer hunting. 0 buckshot is a bit smaller. Same with #1 buckshot.

If you want to buy bags of shot in the future and he doesn't have any then RotoMetals is your best bet. They ship (2) 25# bags for free. If you just want one then Ballistics Products is a bit better due to shipping.

PS: If you want to sell one or both of those 5# bags of #1 buckshot, I'll buy them.

You can still use the buckshot. Just figure out what such and such of  6 1/2 / 7 1/2 shot weighs and then weigh out the buckshot to match.

yeah but don't think it would be to good for rabbits.
he knew I wanted lead shot but I was also buying .36 cal balls for the Tennessee rifle I just traded for so he brought them out to see if I could use them.. he had had them in the back room for 10 yrs or so and forgot about them..
