  • Home defense shotgun shells?

    Anyone have any recommendations or things to consider like over penetration?

    When I was researching what to load my 12 Ga. 870 clone with for home defense, I ended up using 2¾" 4 buck. 4 buck gives me approx 34 .24" pellets VS 9-12 .33" pellets in 00 buck. I figured the 4 buck has enough horsepower to get the job done while minimizing over-penetration and possible collateral damage. There is lots of info and ballistic tests on the web.

        Anything between #4 and 0.
        BB will also work well in CQ.
        The choke will determine how fast it spreads.
        Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.

                It's hit or miss for the #1 buck, but Beikirchs usually has some. The stuff patterns like a dream.

                    Does anyone have an idea of how slugs in a minishell would compare?

                    That is a NICE looking bunch of meat!

                    I can still find a use for my thumb, even though it no longer has a hole to finger.
