If you have a HD shotty, load it up with defense ammo, not target ammo. Remember, you need to stop the threat. Don't give me that crap about price either. Yes, SD ammo will cost more, but all you're doing is putting a price tag on your safety.Police think the suspect was not more seriously injured because he was wearing heavy clothing that stopped some of the birdshot.
Some of those loads are downright nasty sounding. Would really like to see a penetration review on them.I'd say most of these would have been a viable option instead of the bird shot:

No it will not. Some people are just plain dumb. I have hunted all my life and have seen birds that weigh 2 pounds not die from a shot of birdshot.This should end the debate of whether birdshot is an effective SD shell...
