I'm curious as to what Rifled Slugs folks at AR15.Com prefer for defense.

I like to choose optimal loads for my weapons
but for my Tac Shotguns my loads are pretty general: Remington Slugger 1.oz 2 3/4 solid slugs
and 00 Buck. What do you use?

With my personal shotguns, I like Federal Magnum 00 and Federal 1oz slugs for general purpose. I used to keep some of the Federal Tactical load 00, but since it doesnt function 100% in my Benelli, I only keep the full power stuff on hand now. I also have a few of the Brenneke 1oz slugs in the side saddles of my Benelli and 870. They are a full sharp edged profile slug, made of extremely hard lead. The only slug Id depend on for getting through something to the target on the other side

Winchester 2 3/4" non magnum #1 Buck, 16 pellet load, and Federal 2 3/4" 1oz. lead slug.

12 ga Thermo Nuclear Tip, If it does not go
through, you just eliminate the target

im sure any slug will do the trick. at least i have never heard of a slug not doing the job on anything smaller than a mule deer

Federal 12 pellet 2.75" Mag. 00 Buck, and Winchester 1oz. 2.75" slugs here.
Very Nasty!!

Has anyone done a comparison between
Federal 2 3/4 1oz. slugs vs. their 2 3/4
1oz. "Advanced Technology" slugs?

I've been wanting to try Sabot loads for the longest time, but I'm working with standard
Cylinder Bore scatter gun barrels in both my
SGs. Getting a rifled barrel would be great but
I figure it would it would limit my load versatility. Anybody mess around with Flachettes?
