Summary0000370: Buckshot spread/dispersion is extremely wide in relation to real life
DescriptionI was very excited to see that shotguns were added into RHS with 0.3.6. When I went to test them out I immediately noticed that the spread/dispersion was astronomical. At roughly 25 yards the spread was probably something like a 0000009:0000010 foot cone by the 25m mark.

I've submitted a lot of documentation for you guys to review and decide how to modify the dispersion, but my request is for it to be greatly tightened up so that all the pellets stay inside the torso of a man-sized target up to 25m, and most of them still inside the full target itself by 50m.
Additional Information-Video I made of the current spread in-game:

Even at 50 yards the spread still stays within a 6 foot sheet(probably about a 3 foot spread):

Interesting doc, I'll investigate the subject.

I just tested the spread and I still think the dispersion needs adjusting.

Here you'll see 10m and 20m examples and the grouping is at least double real world. https://youtu.be/XHZ9AXosj_k [^]

See: https://www.theboxotruth.com/the-box-o-truth-20-buckshot-patterns/ [^]

Currently there are 4 'flyers' whereas in the real world apparently you only get 1 'flyer' and that's only with a 9 shot load, 8 shot doesn't have flyers.

I think it needs to be at least 50% tighter at 20m with only 1 rather than 4 'flyers'.
