Depends on what you plan on using it for.

The beauty of a shotgun is the versatility that it provides by being able to select types of ammo for the task. Buckshot for inside 25 yds, and slugs for jobs beyond that, if you are looking at larger game or defensive tasks.

really depends on the purpose intended. need more information to be able to make any type of informed suggestions.

personally, you will find both expensive to practice with and for HD loads i recommend #4 birdshot, and is much cheaper to shoot. don't anyone take my word for my recommendation, try out #4 birdshot at a distance of 20-30 feet and see how much damage it does before you say it's not enough to get the job done. i have done some informal test with it, and it will penetrate 3/8" plywood and seriously dent and penetrate the quater panel of a car. so IMO, it will do very serious damage to a BG! i found that of the maximum distances in my home, that #4 birdshot will do what i need it to do.

I use slugs for brown bears and buck shot for all of God's other creatures, four legged or two legged.
