What is the best home defense 12ga ammo?

Recommended Posts

Depends... rural home... reduced recoil tactical buckshot: 12 x 00 pellets... about the same as emptying a 9mm mag at the target.
Close neighbors with overpenetration concerns, #1 buckshot will still stop a bad guy, but looses energy quickly after going through walls... safer for neighbors.

Interested in opinions on the best home defense 12 ga ammo.

I just asked a real expert that question who knows all types of firearms inside and out. Let me quote him" Bird shot makes an intruder mad. 00 buckshot makes  two tennis ball size   holes in a violent home invader.'
