    I have some Winchester PDX but haven't tried it yet.

    00 Buck all the way for my Mossy 500.

    And before the "load wars" begin, remember that everyone's situation is different.

    Well the first two are to blast off warning shots from the porch and the last one is to slow 'em down some. That way you won't miss with the buck shot and risk having an errant projectile hit an unintended target.

    Sir no disrespect intended but as some one who has seen numerous prison inmates shot with bird shot please be aware racking the slide did not deter them, blank rounds did not deter them and often multiple rounds of bird shot did not deter them. Take this for what it is worth and please you and your family be safe.

    Nobody is getting a warning shot from me. Not only is that illegal where I live but if it is time to fire they are the target and with 00 buck.

    To the OP Buck N Ball loads used to be common. And with so many .410 defence loads comming out Ive seen more lately. As to will it work for you in your gun, you will just have to try them out. Buy a couple of boxes and set up some large cardboard targets. Try them at distances you would expect to shoot. I live in the country, so my typical distances are probably longer than a city guy. I want to hit with athourty at 30 to 40 yds. [accross my yard ]. My best patterns at 35yds were from #4 buck using a Mod choke. Second best were from the same load and a full choke. The full choke had quite a few flyers but still centered most of the load. But Buck N Ball up close would likely get the job done. DR

    Here's what I keep loaded by my bed side. Watch the video. This stuff will stop anything.

    Home defense shotgun ammo.

    I have a 590A1 and I would never shoot warning shots. I keep my shotgun loaded with 7 LE 132 9 pellet 00 buckshot rounds and if I shoot I shoot to kill. I do have a light so I can ID the potential BG first. I use the momentary on switch so to hopefully avoid making myself a target at night.

    Mine is loaded with slugs. If I am in my home with my shotgun in hand, I am barricaded in my room with the family behind me.

    00 Buck for me but I do like the look of that hexelit slug. That clay vid looks like some serious energy transfer.
