Default Looking for some suggestions on what slugs to get

Hey ya'll. I wanted to gauge the forums and ask what slugs are the best. I don't shoot slugs through my shotgun, just never got around to it but I got to thinking, I need something heavy hitting in case the perp hides behind a cinder block wall.

Here is the barrel I will be running the slugs through: http://www.ebay.com/itm/231175420432?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2649&ssPageNa me=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Smooth bore and the barrel really doesn't have a choke on it. This is EXTREMELY embarrassing but as I said, slugs are not my main suite. I was only exposed to buckshot and birdshot growing up. I just never saw the use for slugs until now. Anywho, please recommend some good loads!

Alright, purchased. First time using lucky gunner. Their shipping can be pretty pricey though. I ordered 3 boxes. $31 total.

I have a picture somewhere that will show you what will happen when you shoot one through steel at 20 yards...Let me see if I can find it. They are devastating...

Any one once slug with a velocity of 1,600 fps will crush a cinder block wall. You can find plenty of videos on youtube were they do crush cinder blocks with a shotgun.

My father worked for LA county SD during the Watts riots. There was a group of rioters shooting at people behind a block wall. Several deputies got together with pump shotguns and took the wall down with a single volley.

In self defense I really doubt you will need to take down a block wall. But you do have a true one shot stop load for your shotgun. In the confines of your average home buckshot has to be shot just as accurately as a slug. You just as well use a slug for SD.

If you can ignore the guy talking here is holes in steel at 15 yards..No action, just the results.

Those were Sabot Slugs in a smoothbore, the one's you got will be much more accurate with the rifling probably out to 75 yards or so....Maybe even 100. Someone with more knowledge than me can be more exact but I think i'm in the right ballpark...I love blowing up TV's and such with slugs!

I always found it Ironic that Rifled slugs cannot be fired in rifled barrels. I like the rifle slugs because they pretty much are exactly like a civil war bullet and the turning of technology with rifling. HISTORY
