I assume the bear was done in by a 10 gauge Parker . But was it buckshot or punkin balls ?

One ounce Winchester slug loaded in once fired Federal paper hull trimmed to 2 5/8” pushed by 3 1/4 drams Goex FF black powder and roll crimped. Left barrel of the Space Age Parker (Mike Franzen found, restored, named and graciously sold me this gun) is incredibly accurate. Ten yard shot from a ground blind, double lunged boar went 40 yards. Best bear with the Parker to date tipped the scales at 275. Had some delicious bear backstraps last night.
