    What ever you use don't use number 12 shot loads or any bird shot, it will not stop a person very well. The general consensus is buck shot 00 or 000 or slugs. That's just what i've read tho for what that's worth.

    +1 on the birdshot.

    birdshot is for birds.

    I have some 00 buck wolf which feeds well. I've actually read that the reduced recoil loads have tighter groups :dunno: buy 5-10 rounds of all the popular loads (winchester, federal, remington) and try them out. :wavey:

    well, if you decide to buy a few different brands it might be easier to get them at a store because of shipping or what not. :dunno: i bought 250 rounds of 00 buck from midway...i'll probably have that shit forever :hs:

    i've been using remington so far in my shotgun...i think they are birdshot...whatever they sell out on the shelves, but i know its not target load, bought from walmart...but i only shoot for fun and keep some slugs just in case someone breaks in :dunno:

    I have a mix of slugs and buckshot in my gun, I would have to check to see the exact mix, but I think they are alternating.

    .

    I've got the 2 3/4" Low Recoil Winchester Super X 00 buck in my M500. With the SpecOps it is SO smooth.

    SAIGA gets 2 3/4" Buckhammer Remington Reduced Recoil Slugs and 2 3/4" Federal #1 buck.
