Question about flechette compared to buckshot

So after the spring patch they tweaked the damages pretty drastically. Is there any reason to use flechette on pump or even on semiauto shotguns?
The only benefit I could see from the stats is faster muzzle velocity and they can penetrate multiple targets and body armor.
IIRC they used to do more damage at range and had better drop off ranges before spring patch.

flechettes have slightly lower damage per pellet, but a 2.0 base pellet cone vs. buckshot's 2.4. Flechette actually has better damage density, buckshot is just a bit more forgiving.

flechette have 2.0° pellet cone, a higher speed, ignore body armor and can penetrate more targets (8.4-4.2dmg)
buckshot has 2.4° pellet cone and higher damage (11.2 - 5.6dmg)


i still use flechette on high pellet count shotguns for the better performance at "medium" range and to penetrate soft cover.

I don't think so: think that property is reserved for flechettes, which can also pierce light cover (railings, destructible wood structures for example).
