Not much strikes fear into the heart of an intruder in your home quite like the sound of a pump-action shotgun. Even the most gun-naïve knows the sound you make racking a shell to fill the chamber, and because of that, there are those who believe you should wait to rack a shell until your would-be foe can hear it. Although there are actually studies backing up the psychological impact of hearing the sound, there are problems with that logic. Most important is the tactical disadvantage of intentionally approaching an assailant when your weapon isn’t live: while you’re waiting to make a “psychological impact” via noise they could be firing their at-ready weapon or charging you with a knife. With that in mind, train to chamber a shell without hesitation; don’t wait for maximum auditory impact. You want maximum shotgun impact.
The 00 buck shells are a favorite of many for home defense. There are 9 nickel-plated pellets loaded into each shell; typically 8 find their way and the 9th goes astray. As all shotgun lovers know, there’s substantial recoil involved with the use of a 12 gauge, but these are specially made for low recoil. Each shell is the standard 2 ¾” in length. You want your shell to burst from your shotgun with impressive speed, and these do with a muzzle velocity of 1150 feet per second. One home-defense user concerned with the disorienting effect of the sound of a shotgun being fired in an enclosed space tested it in a safe location and reported these low-recoil shells produce not only less recoil but also less noise. These shells are a great choice for home defense and can also be used for hunting game such as deer, tactical training, and casual shooting days when blowing away pumpkins is your goal.
