I've put Federal Critical Defense in my 870 recently, but I haven't fired any yet. Regarding bird shot. Not my first or second choice, but if that's all I've got, that's what's going down range, and in close quarters, like a house, I wouldn't want to be at the recieving end. MHO you understand.

I get it. It is better than a pointy stick. But if I'm picking ahead of time what's going to be in the gun, birdshot isn't it.

This cop is probably not happy that he got shot but is probably pleased it was with bird shot and not buck or slugs. (Birdshot does not act like a slug at close to contact distance).

Not saying it can't be deadly, just that it's not predictable.
