For home defense, if penetration is an issue, I usually recommend EITHER #4 bird (AKA turkey shot) or #4 buck. The pellets are heavy enough for the job but not so heavy as to be over penetrating. I prefer #4 Bird personally.

Be sure to look as this ... You may want to do your own tested to confirm what works best for you and yours.

JCMS posted it and I feel it offers some good info. Just keep this in mind...the distance across a 12 foot square room is the distance you will likely be from the BG, unless the confrontation occurs in the yard and then we open up another can of worms as the possibility of collateral damage came increase by several factors. Remember .....AIM for the center of the BG and double tap...then assess the situation. If there are other BGs, repeat until they are stopped.

Kevin, it's amazing. i can't be any more happier with it. Rayz and I took it out today for the first time along with his mini-14 and fired off a few rounds and i love it. no problems at all, shot at least 5 different types of ammo through it at 7 and 14 yards. at this point the hornady critical defense 00 buck is the most impressive. with sellier & bellet #1 buck being... less than satisfactory i should say (HUGE spread at 7 yards) still looking to try out that Federal #1 with flight control wad though.

 

Bart, The Girlfriend hasn't had a chance to shoot it, but she's not extremely frail and the recoil on this thing is great, at this point i think she'll be able to handle the 00 loads just fine. So i think I'm gonna go ahead and stick with 00 for HD at the time being (maybe federal #1 if i can get a hold of it)

 

Stray- Didn't find any of the #1 i wanted but im still looking at ALL the other stuff they've got!
