    I truly like #4 buckshot for IN-HOME defensive load, not much to say really except send one at a target and count the holes and verify point of aim. This is ONE 1 shot at 12 yards(36feet) which is about longest possible shot in our house.
    18" cyl bore mossy 500, 0407201340_HDR.jpg That should do the trick.

    I think any buckshot is a pretty effective fight stopper...especially inside 15 yards. Of course, I can really only base that on what I have seen it do to various target mediums. Hopefully, I'll never personally witness what it actually does to a human being. Take care. Tom Worthington

    So very true Tom, I would agree with that wholeheartedly. What I was curious about to the point I think we will actually set up a test to see if any appreciable penetration difference , meaning thru the bad actor and clothing then a standard wall ie drywall air drywall. I'm curious does the 4buck offer any advantage in that regard ? What do ya think ? As soon as we can get a volunteer to shoot thru we will runnthe test, I guess we may need 2 volunteers :lol:

    At less than 15 yards? Yeah, I think #4 buck will penetrate just fine. At any range beyond that, then there might be a debate. Take care. Tom Worthington

    Alright.. same as here. We dont have the same "names" but i have a chart where i can compare US and "European" ammo but its not always a precise list. I have both 00 and #4 prepared, depending on "scenario" :D
    ..and slugs of course :)
