    Scatter guns are made for shot. Slugs and bird shot are for hunting. Get some buckshot.

    If your apartment is connected to others. I would keep it loaded with bird shot for HD to minimize over penetration.
    Of course I would keep an assortment of 00 Buck and slugs on hand for "emergencies". Many to chose from I prefer Federal Tactical for both.

    #2`s or 4`s, that way you don`t have to worry (much) about the shot going through walls....................

    That's a little high for the shells here in southern Ohio they average out to about .90 cents a shell

    Just a little high but not bad considering the times. Congrats sounds like your set.

    Didn't I buy that Federal military deal in the .50 Cal Ammo Can for, like, $89 two years ago?

    Wouldn't suprise me one bit. I went to 6 different places and all they was bird shot. Finally found this treasure chest of buckshot lol.

    Thanks a lot Obama

    I checked. I sure did. $89. Got one for myself and another for a buddy 'cuz they were too cheap to pass up on. If I were smart I woulda kept both... But I'm not, I didn't need 'em, and don't even love 00 Buck. Plus he needed all the help he could get (trust me). I noted three months later they were "on sale" at the same place for $129.

    :)

    I will say they are top shelf, hot, ammo and tactical 'cuz they are green (right?) plus the ammo can itself has value. Still no worse a deal today than it ever was buying them all separately in individual five-packs plus an ammo can at the LGS. And finding them in the first place was a coup!
