Does anyone make this and is it too much as a defense round cause it will go through the neighbors walls?

Apparently Remington makes them and I would imagine others must too then.

I don't know about overpenetration, but with 18 pellets you can be assured that whatever you shoot with it will definately be hurting!

I'm just having a hard time finding these.
3" and 2-3/4" are everywhere

Looks like Winchester makes them too:

www.winchester.com/products/catalog/shotdetail.aspx?symbol=XB12L00&use=4&gauge=12

I haven't seen them in stores either, but I think if you did a google search for them, you would find a company like Midway, Cabelas or Natchez Shooters supply might have them. They sure would be "Rhino rollers"!

Normal 12GA allready does this...

3.5" will be worse...

So unless you fight rampaging grizzlybears, not a good defense round...

I know of one gun shop I've seen them stocked, in CT near my woman's house. I think 9 pellets of 00 is enough for most defensive purposes, but maybe one day I'll check out the 3 1/2 shells for fun factor.

I know guys who bought the 3 1/2 shotguns for hunting...most were sold to some other sucker after the first outing...BRUTAL recoil

I saw a test a few years ago were they were using standars 00 buck,, not magnums. It was out an abandoned house. Standing at the curb they fired 00 buck at the house. Unless it hit a stud or something else the buck exited out the backside of the house. I worked a shooting a few years back
the suspect shot at the victim with buckshot, he missed, it went throught the metal siding, into the house and through another interior wall. Stick with standard or tactical 2 3/4 for defensive purposes.
