    Personally, Id like to think it doesn't take much to consider any 12 ga ammo 'self-defense'.

    But in the interest of all that is fuckin' cool -- opinions?

    What's the general concensus on slugs?

    If you have a chokeless barrel you should be fine with this stuff. Even with a choke I would think you would be ok.

    I've shot that stuff, along with dragons breath and bird bombs with no ill effects to the barrel of my 590.

    I may get some then just to see what it does. Pics look interesting.

    I dig both. Usage is dependant upon the application. A 1 oz. slug into a human, with the necessary backstop would be highly effective.[​IMG]

    They'll probably all pattern differently out of your gun. I'd buy several brands if they're available, run your target out to 7 yards or whatever and see which one produces the tightest pattern from your gun.

    ive read that reduced recoil rounds actually hold tighter groups, but have never tried it :dunno:

    When I get a smooth bore 870 for home defense, I will be using these:

    For now though, it's Hornady 300gr. SST sabots in my rifle-barreled Mossy 500.

    Very true. Every barrel will have it's "magic" round. My 870P likes Ranger Reduced Recoil 00 buck.
