I have a random assortment for mine. It's my turkey gun though, there are 000 buck 00 buck low recoil buck slugs. Whatever I grab. I rely on my handgun for hd. That 26 or 28" barrel is toooo big

I like the 00 buck. Slugs are good for longer distance but when it comes to a room clearer those 9, 00 pellets can do some damage.

Winchester super X 9 pellet 00 buck, doesn't have much recoil and fits in all of my shotguns.

So my buddy and I shot my new shotgun yesterday.....all I can say is "wow....I'm very happy with it".....we set up a bunch of water filled milk jugs, and ran a couple slugs and #4 buckshot.....and I give it another "wow"....what fun those slugs are.....also shot at a cinder block, which totally annihilated it from about 50 ft....it was a fun day

There is a good reason the 870 is the best selling shotgun in history......I think you found it.

High velocity 3" BB 12ga is unbelievably underrated for home defence. Any larger shot & you get less shot per shell (resulting in less concentrated spread & rounds on target) any smaller shot may result in under penetration & less killing capability. I also suggest 00bk for home defence however past med distance even mag loads are unreliable at best. Military testing has shown that you need 3 of the 00bk pellets in center mass to cause effective damage for the guaranteed kill. Also look into Winchester pdx1-12 home defence ammo. Three 00bk pellets in front of a 1oz hollow point rifled slug, they also offer fragmenting slug variety.

I live at the edge of town so penetration is less of a problem I like 12 pellet 00 buck.

Although at normal in house distances, skeet loads will work.
