    I use 2 3/4 win. supreme 00 in my auto and reduced recoil 00 in my pump.
    I don't think flavor is all that important, if it says 12ga and buckshot it will do the job.

    I just bought 50 rounds of Noble Sport 12g, 2 3/4, 00 Buckshot from Ammunition To Go. Noble Sport is Italian made for the Caribineri (Federal Poilce) and other police agencies. It is of higher grade than their other brand. Fifty rounds delivered to your door comes out to about 78 cents per round vice Remmington and Winchester which are about $1 per round.

    Hmmmm..... thats interesting. So it seems like its good stuff. Have you been using it for a while? I want good ammo but the more I think about i guess for the 12 ga. and for buck shot its pretty much all the same. Does it store well??? This is ammo that has to last. Thanks!

    Probably something most instructors would warn against, for what it is worth. Most agree that it is all buck, all slug or all less lethal, never a mix.

    The best is subjective, but a majority of the user feedback on forums will yield 00 buck. With that in mind I picked up 100 rds. of Hornady TAP 00 low recoil from ammunitiontogo.com a few weeks ago.

    How do the low recoil shells compare to the standard. I would think that the low recoil shells would not be as effective as the regular shotgun shells. Anyone got input on this??? Preferably some real world tests.

    Low recoil is still over 1150 feet per second. Thats 9mm bullet speed. Plenty enough velocity to penetrate a human body.

    Stick with #00, #1 or #4 buckshot in whatever brand you choose.

    I too have the Nobel Sport #4 low recoil buck shot along with Federal Tactical #00 Low recoil.
    I am consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing concealed carry.

    I just got the stuff. Will try to fire it at the range this weekend. I do not know of any shotguns that are picky about ammo although there may be a few. It's not like handguns that can be picky.

    Shot guns, like pistols and rifles, have a liking for one brand over another. This is very important in hunting guns. For hunting purposes it is important to pattern the shot gun with several different brands to see which one your gun really likes. In SD shot guns, where targets are much closer, and the choice of shot used is much smaller, the issue is not as critical, and almost any brand will work just fine. I've noticed here, in this discussion, that most are recommending the 2 3/4" shells for SD, and was just wondering if any of you knew (and I'm sure you do) that the 2 3/4" #00 Buck load will shoot farther than the #00 Buck loads in 3", and 3 1/2" loads? The reason is a lighter load!

    Oh wow, I didn't know that the 2 3/4 00 Buck shells shoot farther than the 3 and 3 1/2 in. shells ---- makes sense though. Good to know :)
