Default Winchester Rounds?

Are Winchester Rifled Slugs(Hollow Point) a good choice for self-defense or would I be better with Buckshots? Thanks

I hunt with my shotguns, so that being said I keep #6 high brass game loads loaded up, but I would choose buckshot if thats what you would like to use over slugs, just because you have to half ass aim with a slug and in the dark that might be a little hard to do, with the buckshot you can do the proverbial pray and spray, point in general direction and let loose, one round that I think would be awesome is the Dead Coyote #4s they straight up stop yotes in their tracks and im pretty sure they would do the same on an assailant as well.

Yes this Maverick 88 is just a home defense gun, I dont do any hunting at all(and wont be)...so for a self defense round you would go with a buckshot over a slug do to having to somewhat aim a slug?

I would definitely choose some sort of scatter shot over a slug, or you could do a mix a lot of guys will do 1 or 2 birdshot for what they call a "warning shot" or what I call the reconsideration factor, then a couple buck shot and if they are still coming at ya shoot some 1 oz slugs there way and that will definitely get their attention.

00 buck for shotgun loads. the only warning a goblin gets is "go away i have a gun" after that they get shot if they persist in threatening life or property. no such thing as warning shots.

00 buckshot or slugs are effective SD loads. I prefer slugs for my situation. At indoor distances no size shot will have much time to spread more than a couple of inches at best so any load you choose will have to be aimed. The shotgun point and shoot theory is not correct.
