personally i am not going to rehash this argument, nor do i feel compelled to defend why i choose the ammo i choose to use. i know that i have confidence in my ammo choice for my intended usage. i have tested my loads, and know what they will do, at the range i would use them at.

funny thing is, everyone that feels #4 birdshot is not effective for SD, won't stand in front of it for some reason. hmmmm..... is bucksot better than #4 birdshot? yes. but my reasons are my own for my choice and i have stated them before.
