Does anyone know if those Dixie Tri-Ball loads are legal for buckshot use in NB? They only have three balls in a load, but they are .600 caliber . . . . as opposed to the .30 or .33 cal stuff in most buckshot loads.

Dunno, Only during Deer season if they are either way.
Why would someone choose these over traditional buckshot .. or a slug? Sounds to me like the worst of both worlds but I am curious.

They supposedly punch a lot harder and pattern a lot tighter than traditional 00 or 000 buckshot.

Now, if you are hunting deer or bear in an area that's too close to use a rifle or slugs, you can probably see why "uber-buckshot" would have an advantage.
