OO Buck is .34" = 9 in a 12ga 2 3/4" & 15 in a 3"

OOO Buck is .36"

Shooting large buck shot in a full choked belgium barrel probably will not give you very good results due to shot deformation.

i am new to turkey hunting and thought i could get longer shots with 00 buck [around 50 yds] killed two last spring approx 30 & 50 yds each i figure 1.30 cal pellet is all it takes to drop a turkey. I like 71/2 shot for quail . game is ushally taken at longer distance here in southern N.M that is why i like full choke what is your favorite size shot for various game. fall turkey starts on the 13th & dove started on the 1st

16Penny,

Is the serial number on your FN A5 2244XX with no letters before it? If so, the original barrel would have been serial numbered as the gun.
