This is a discussion on 12 ga. Home Defense-Buckshot Only? (Dupe threads merged) within the Defensive Rifles & Shotgun Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; With OO Buck, wouldn't the better choice be 12 pellets rather than 8 or 9 pellets per round? Heavier pellets and more of them can't ...

    Here is my rationale for using #1 buckshot:
    I might agree, but I've never seen #1 buckshot for sale anywhere.

    When I kept a shotgun by my bed for self defense, I had it loaded with #4 buck. From what I have read, this should be enough on most BGs to end any threat. If not, that is why I had the mag tube extension on the end with more ready to go. If someone were to use the reduced recoil ammo, then perhaps having larger buckshot would be advisable. For me, using these seems like it would have worked best.

    I now use equalizer ammo in my Glock 20 from doubletap. The receiving end gets 2 hits about 1" apart at defensive shooting ranges... making my handgun a bit like my 870.

    Got mine online. It's out there.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    I use Federal LE Tactical 8 pellet 2 3/4" 00 buckshot in my Benelli Super Nova. With that Flite Control Wad it will be like shooting a rifle at the typical home defense ranges.

    Personally I use Remington 00Buck-9 as it's a proven performer and it's readily available almost anywhere, including WalMart and most sporting goods stores. That, and zombies hate it.

    End of story.
