    you can take down a deer at 50 yds with buckshot.
    any shell, any distance in a house will do the trick.

    Local range hates it when I bring the 870 out. Shotgun target 25 yards min., I destroy the target after some 50 rounds of shot. Then their is the buckshot. My favorite is the Magnum slugs and 200 yard target destruction.
