The IWBA research states #1 buckshot is superior to 00 buckshot. That's what I load and use for defense.

The Firearms Tactical Institute reports:

"Number 1 buck is the smallest diameter shot that reliably and consistently penetrates more than 12 inches of standard ordnance gelatin when fired at typical shotgun engagement distances. A standard 2 -inch 12 gauge shotshell contains 16 pellets of #1 buck. The total combined cross sectional area of the 16 pellets is 1.13 square inches. Compared to the total combined cross sectional area of the nine pellets in a standard #00 (double-aught) buck shotshell (0.77 square inches), the # 1 buck shotshell has the capacity to produce over 30 percent more potentially effective wound trauma. In all shotshell loads, number 1 buckshot produces more potentially effective wound trauma than either #00 or #000 buck. In addition, number 1 buck is less likely to over-penetrate and exit an attacker's body."

Not reloads but...

I keep my 870 stoked with these.

Bought these several years ago, so thought I'd show the price tag. Have no idea what these goes for now, or if one can even buy any at this time.

I feel confident that if I did my part, the BG is going to have a very bad day.

When dealing with Democrats, let us remember we are
not dealing with creatures of logic. We are dealing with
creatures of emotion, creatures bristling with prejudices
and motivated by pride and vanity.

Does his 20 ga except 3" if they do then get #1 or 2! If not then #4 is the best one!

If you can find any? Looking around semms nobody has any! Like everything else!

Molds arn't expensive. Maybe they will custom make a mold.(like a #3 and #1 buck combo)

Birdshot has poor penetration, I won't use it for SD.
