I like the Wichester supreme turkey loads but my Mossy is loaded with Federal 8 pellet low recoil flight control wads.....Pretty badazz round with one nice tight pattern at 20-25 ft which is all I'll ever need....I hope.....Those personal defense rounds are a marketing skeem and are way out of reality in price, cause you can get Winchester Ranger 9 pellet low recoil 25 rounds for less than that..I have found a hot lil load in a cheap package with the RIO low recoil 8 and 9 pellet...check em out.. Hornady Blue hulls are pretty tough also but for the price and good quality 00 you cant go wrong with RIO>>>
They can say "it's more effective" all they want but it can't be anymore effective than dead..

You could'nt of said it better.....Hell rock salt'll get ya is ya close enough.......lol
