A magnum load of 12 gauge 3” 00 Buck Shot. This is a potent round suitable for a wide range of uses, notably, large game hunting in jurisdictions that allow for shotshell hunting on big game. It is also suitable for longer range threat interdiction by law enforcement whereby they can mitigate a threat at distance before it becomes a bigger threat to public or personal safety. The round is also a potent and well known self-defense favorite for those who have larger homes or larger distances to protect in rural areas that need better long range accuracy and a shoulder-able stock that a shotgun can provide.
As a venerable home defense option, this shell has a risk of over penetration if you are not well informed about the capability of the round. The ballistics are extreme and offer top tier threat stopping for homeowners that need the best in personal protection. The 15 pellet 00 Buck shot payload offers 15 projectiles in a cup that are roughly equivalent to a 9mm projectile in diameter (.330” versus the 9mm’s .355 diameter). The grain weight of 15 pellets is roughly equivalent to 7 shots of 115 grain 9mm projectiles. As you can see, it’s obvious the amount of energy delivery potential and the stopping power of the shell featured here.
