    Shotgun ammo of choice for home use

    OO, bird shot, flechette ammo? What do you have packed in your shotgun for home defense? Deep penetration or light so it doesn't go through walls?

    Considering that my wife and I have no one else living with us my Mossberg stays loaded with 3" 00 buckshot (15 pellets). I realize that there will be some wall and structure damage but hope that the outcome will be one where I will survive to repair the damage.

    1st out is a slug, topped with 6 rounds of '000' Buck. I guess I"m not playin' around.

    birdshot is cheap and will still split a head open or strip flesh off your bones.

    1st Shell is 3" Slug, the rest are 00 Buck. I realize there will be quite a mess and home remodeling involved, but I want no doubt about dropping the intruder.
