Sure, some “tac” guy behind the counter told you buckshot was the only way to go in your self-defense shotgun. He was only part right.
“Remember, the load is called ‘buckshot’ because it was originally used for killing large animals, like buck deer … . It is powerful stuff … the shotgun round that people fear the most. Most criminals are too dense to realize that they face an equal amount of damage, maybe even more, due to the shredding effect of all those little pellets from from a close range load of AA Trap or Skeet as they do from 00.”—Scott W. Wagner, Gun Digest Tactical Shotgun
