Depends on the shot gun. For a single shot 12 gauge I would go with a three inch magnum 00 buck or even a heavy 2 shot if you will be in close. In a 12 gauge pump I would alternate slugs with 00 buck.

If you shoot someone in the face with # 2 turkey shot from about 10 ft away they won't have a face.

First 2 rounds are 00 Buckshot, then 3 slugs. Slugs will knock down even wearers of dragon armor vests.

Have you ever reloaded shot gun shells?

Just buy the freakin bird shot and you can manipulate the loads as needed down the road.......

Buck shot or buck and ball. They make mini projectiles for bears too. Switch em up. I'd get at least 2 k rounds for stock pile. Ammo prices are going up like silver and gold.

...and don't forget your birdshot can be used as a slug for dual purpose hunting/killing.

00 Buck is what I chose.If you havnt aleady bought the gun then learn from my mistake.I thought I was bieng Smart and bought a semi auto 3 1/2 12 Guage.Bigger is better,Right? Not really.The ammo is more,it takes up more space and the gun holds less rounds...I eventually sold it and switched back to 3 in 12 guage.


For home defence get it with a 18,5 inch barrle.At 18.5 inches with 3 inch 00 buck shot the spread pattern is 1 inch per yard from muzzle out.

Not too much of an issue unless hes all fancy and crap with a semi-auto shotty.

But really I imagine having a good amount of birdshot would be best, worst case would be "cutting" the shells to make slugs so long as you DON"T have a choke on your shotgun (or opening the top and filling with Crayons to make "Wax Slugs"). You can get them cheap from Wal-Mart for around $25 for 100 of #7 1/2 or #8.

I'd keep a 50/50 amount of slugs and buckshot.

Power would depend solely on what your shotgun can handle and what you're comfortable with, don't go balls out with 3 1/2 shells, they kick like Chuck Norris.

Depends if you have neighbours and or people in the house that you would mind maiming or killing in the process of defending your home...

#4 buckshot will do the job without killing your neighbour in the process...
And can help you hunt food in time of crisis. Ever try getting a rabbit with a slug?!? Not much left to eat...
