All of my serious shotgun ammo is low recoil Federal. Truball slugs and low recoil OO buck with Flitecontrol wads. Read the link above and notice the 30 yard buckshot target on page 6. The performance from a defensive shotgun is the best out there. I don't think a lot of people have the time, money, or facilities to actually pattern their SD buckshot or shoot their SD slugs for groups. It pays off.
