Ok Buckshot is not the best for HD. Buckshot 00 9 .32 cal pellets which what 80% used for home. I found out that if the BG get hit with 00 at 25yds, he may get hit with 3 or 4 pellets. Which 65% change that he will live to rob again. all Information comes from FBI reports on home shoot outs. I use BB shot for my shotgun with a turkey choke. Why? 250 bb makes hamburger meat, no way to sew that up.
