My first brand new gun was a 16 ga. bolt action shot gun. It held 2 in the clip (box mag) 1 in the chamber. I used it for deer and small game. If you can only afford one gun, a shotgun is the ticket in my opinion. I once hit a 2 gal milk jug at about 80 to 100 yds. with a deer slug (ounce ball for you other old timers). I had to hold about 9 inches high but the slug had plenty of poop to not only reach the jug but the jug exploded on impact. Killing a deer at 100 td with a 12 ga and buck shot is not hard to believe at all. Someone may not understand how reloads can loosen a stock. Simply, hot reloads put a lot of extra back pressure and shock on the mechanism. A mod. 1100 Rem is a gas operated semi auto. The back pressure drives the bolt back, ejects the spent shell and loads the next. All that "extra" pressure jars the gun and can loosen screws wobble out holes and scar the bore. I own a 1100 and will only use standard shells in it. It is over 40 YO and in great shape. With a modified choked barrel It is a great bird gun

You guys know nothing about shotguns and reloading.

I also dive in the ocean and hunt fish, free diving not using air, and do i have diving stores.....

And some really great wild mushroom stories...

Ncalcouple- you are comparing shooting a duck at 70 yards away to a deer. Lol. I bet you have some good fishing stories to. Lol

I regret responding to any of his posts, but I find it extremely difficult to believe reloads have anything to do with a loose stock. But then again, I don't believe anything that guy says. Ever.

Fred i may know nothing about handguns but i starting shooting shotguns at age eight and started reloading at age thirteen.

I would ride my bike through town to my friends dairy with my shotgun strapped to my bike with a backpack of shells. We we would shot doves, ducks and pheasants.

My friends and i would pump up the reloads, this was in the time of lead shot, using the Alcan powder. The AL7 was a hot powder and with a pumped up load we could throw lead with accuracy and power for 70 yards killing ducks and geese with ease.

The longest shot i ever made on a honker was with my reloads throwing #2s. It was so far away that i was not going to shot but i said what the hell, honkers where a once in a lifetime opportunity back then. I am not even going to guess how far the shot was, the bird folded up and took a long time to hit the ground.

I plucked that bird down looking for the hole where i hit him, but i could never find one. I figured that i hit the bird in the head with just enough impact to knock the bird out and the fall killed it.

The 00 buckshot was relaods, i was getting some firewood and took my shotgun to shoot some squirrels..but i carried the buckshot just in case.

The deer was just standing there watching me buck up the tree, the first shot nothing happened, the second he collapsed like a sack of potatoes.

I still have my first and only shotgun a Remington 1100, the reloads have made the stock permanently lose...but the birds that gun killed.

I would think the spread of the shot at that distance.... you're lucky you even hit the deer at all.

Buckshot is not for distance shooting.
