I've been using Federal reduced recoil in my HD shotgun with good results out of an 18.5" barrell.

try out several different brands and types to see what works best in your gun for you. a lot of difference is in the barrel length and type of choke your shotgun has. my barrel length and choke, and everyone elses may be different than yours. just go out do some shooting and try some different ammo out and have a good time. i always have a good time trying out different ammo, because even a bad day of shooting still beats a good day at work!

Default Well...

...at ranges under 50 ft. that is home defense - any buckshot load that functions reliably in your shotgun will do the job.

I use standard shot for HD. My rational is this... If I shoot someone in the confines of my home it should be justified regardless the type of ammo I use, but if I shoot him with buckshot it is obvious I was keeping my weapon loaded with a specific kind of ammo designed with a specific kind of intent. If my actions ever fell under legal scrutiny I want the ability to say I used a game load because it was the ammo I had in the house as the result of a hobby and not the buckshot load because I thought I could have to shoot someone... I realize this is a weak justification but at the inside a house range I think birdshot from my 12ga. will do the job just as well as any other and not necessarily demonstrate an intent for human harm... I am fortunate however to live in Missouri which is a good state for firearms owners... We have some pretty lenient gun laws and I feel as though my choice of ammo would not in itself be a reason to put my actions on trial...

I'm going to disagree here. While a face full of bird shot would definately darken his day, it may not kill him and then you have that possible legal battle to deal with. If you like in an area where you can keep a shotgun justifiably loaded for reasons other then HD, then you can justify keeping it loaded with buckshot. Got coyote?

Self defense and home defense with a firearm is still legal (in most areas) in the US of A. To shoot someone in defense of yourself and your family is a horrible thing. If that person is still alive to sue you, you will regret using birdshot. That is a BIG "IF". Youl do not shoot to kill. You do not shoot to "stop". You shoot to live. Failing to disable the intruder does little to keep you alive. You run significant risk of just pissing him off.

USE BUCKSHOT. EVEN #4 buck is better than birdshot.
