Nemesis Posted October 6, 2006 Share Posted October 6, 2006 Guys, When talking about home defense shells and terminal ballistics, I am a bigger fan of "penetration" versus "expansion." This is because I don't have to worry about "overpenetration issues" and may find myself shooting through barriers. I am looking for the following characteristics in a 12 gauge tactical shotgun shell: 1) For shot--00 buck or #1 buck that is harder (i.e., the pellets do not deform as much and penetrate more). 2) For slugs--harder 1 oz. rifled slugs that do not deform as much and penetrate more. I have heard that Brennke makes these (i.e., lead alloyed with something harder) but they do not fit characteristic number 3 which is..... 3) For both slugs and shot--they MUST be low recoil shells. Does anyone make such ammunition? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
