    What particular brands are you guys using in your shotguns...!?

    Right now I have 250 rounds of 2 3/4" Nobel Sport Law Enforcement 12 pellet with a muzzle velocity of 1,290 fps...

    ...and 250 rounds of 2 3/4" Sellier & Bellot 9 pellet with a muzzle velocity of 1,180 fps.

    Both are well suited for personal defense as well as hunting small to medium size game from my double (side by side) and pump action 12 gauge shotguns.

    I have some old left over Remington 00 buck, and Federal LE 00 9 ball loads, plus some odd ball slulgs, all .12 ga.

    My new go to .12 ga loads are Remington 00BK 2 3/4" 9 ball loads, 1325 fps. They are easy to find local and work just fine.:machinegun

    for 00 buck I use whatever is on sale. It all seems to work pretty much the same on deer. For around the house I use 2 3/4" heavy game loads number 6 shot. At room to room distances it works as well as buckshot without the problems of shooting through several walls.
