Ive only shot remingtons police tactical stuff
and want to try other stuff
ie 2 3/4 and 3"
slugs, buckshot, and others
mostly defense use
i figure some smaller shot so you can really pepper the hell out of a badguy
and then if they persist then move to the good stuff

Im looking through Cheaperthandirt at some stuff


any thoughts on ammo

any reviews

its a smoothbore 870 police 18"

SLUGS
www.cheaperthandirt.com/slug_dfe.htm

SHOTSHELLS
www.cheaperthandirt.com/000000bu_dfb.htm

there is also the 2 3/4 pages

Im asking so i dont buy the wrong stuff
I was just sold by someone saboted slugs and found that it doesnt work in smoothbores
I guess Im still somewhat new to the shotgun world, then again I did ask for slugs.

Im sure Dick Cheney could give you advice on what works well against the bad guys.

thats funny
but i honestly think the world should leave him alone bout it now
it happens more often than not
and im sure he doesnt exactly feel great that he peppered some guy and
then the media grates on the issue about it.

Now how about an ammo FAQ and review thread
anyone?

Are the sort of guy that thinks it's a good idea to shoot them in the leg first too?

If they're worth shooting, they're worth shooting with something that will kill them. Also worth shooting twice.

I haven't shot the wolf slugs, but the buckshot has been fine for me. It has a little bit of flash out of my 18.5" mossberg, seems as powerful as other 00 buck loads I've shot, doesn't seem to pattern as well. But for general blasting and practice I've found it to be just fine.

Just got 500 rounds of it for free too

I've read that WOLF 00 Buck is not buffered, therfore patterns wider than more expensive stuff.

Great links! I keep my mossberg 590 loaded with 9 rounds of Federal Tactical (reduced recoil) 00 buckshot (9 pellets). I stow 4 rounds of Federal Hydra Shock rifled slugs (1 oz) in the speed feed stock. I have a side saddle on order, and I suspect I will keep a mix of those rounds loaded in it.
