I like having them around just for grins and they`re cheap!
I think the perp would not want to get any closer if he/she got hit with that. My guess they would head for the nearest emergency room.
Don't forget the Cut Shell option with birdshot also, it works
I bought myself some more #4 and #00 buckshot today ( Rottweil Express )
#4 - 27 pellets. 38 gram or 1.34 oz load. Muzzle velocity 390 m/s or 1280 ft/s
#00 - 9 pellets. 33 gram or 1.16 oz load. Muzzle velocity 415 m/s or 1360 ft/s
I ran some 2 1/4" NSI mini buck through the SW this morning.....each load has 6 pellets of 00 and as usual I was at 21` and I was trying to put two load on each target and again I can`t say what the spread was because I never was able to get all 12 pellets on the 8" Dirty Bird target and in this example only 9 of 12 pellets hit paper..... Like most mini shells, this is not a load I would trust with my life!
While I agree not the defense load of choice , I must also say 9 .32 caliber holes in torso all at once would make a statement, and certainly beats harsh language
I can't imagine the bad guy trying to break down the door saying "those are mini shells. I'm going on in".
Sure as hell beats a sharp stick!
2 from 28` using the SW and Federal LE 9 pellet 00.....pretty much just a 2" ragged hole!
This is a load I would trust with my life.....
It`s Friday and time to get the lead out! Up close and personal today....Fiocchi low recoil fired from the SW at a little over 14ft. 9 nickle platted 00 pellets patterned just under 3".
Git er done
