[quote:Anonymous Coward 27573720:MV8yMDQ4ODk2XzM0NDMxNDE4XzhDMTA0OQ==] [quote:Anonymous Coward 26075182:MV8yMDQ4ODk2XzM0NDMxMTAzXzg4OEUzQTZC] What's the better round for home defense? Slug or Buckshot? [/quote] depends on your definition of "home defense", and whether you live alone, and how close neighbors live. if only for interior use, and folks could get hurt by shot going through walls, i'd recommend coarse birdshot. something like goose loads. less wallboard penetration, but still vicious "rat hole" wounds at typical interior ranges. if you live alone, and interior only, you could crank it up a notch to #4 buckshot, assuming you live in a detached home. if you have a fairly large property to defend without anybody within a couple hundred yds, then 00 buck is cool. at close range, all shotloads hit as pretty much a single fist sized or smaller mass, so smaller shot (like #4 birdshot goose loads) will still be awful to be standing in front of, but get much past 50 ft, or add a couple thicknesses of wallboard, the lethality goes way down (killing the wife and kids is frowned on, and neighbors tend to object to catching shot as well). if an apartment even rabbit loads like #6 bird would remove most of the steam from a bad guys boiler, while seriously minimizing risk to others (but lethality begins to wain around 25 ft).

I have a mossberg 500 12 gague and want to know if I need to have a slug barrel to shoot slugs. I'm going deer hunting and want to use slugs but don't wanna buy a slug barrell. Thanks.
