Handy online calculator for Buckshot pellets per layer:
« on: May 21, 2016, 01:48:31 PM »
Ran across this handy online tool for determining the number of buckshot pellets that will fit inside a given inside wad diameter.

For example:
The inside diameter of the non-tapered BP CLBC wad is .620". The largest size for an even three pellet stack is .287".

This calculator also makes it easy to visualize why Winchester reduced 00B diameter in the line to
 .323" * with the 1963 introduction of the Mark V plastic collar and plastic buffer to the Super X Buckshot line.

* As reported by Jack O'Connor in The Shotgun Book (1965)

This game changing addition to the Super-X line was reported in the May 1963 issue of Guns Magazine:
