Out of the myriad choices of buckshot available in 12 gauge 2 3/4 inch, I imagine that most prefer 00 buck for home defense. But, there are also 0 buck, and 1 buck. You can even find 00 buckshot in 8 pellet, 9 pellet and 12 pellet shells. Right now, if price were no object, I would lean towards having more pellets in 1 buck over fewer in 00 buck. What do you guys prefer and why? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
