lets isolate it to a 20ga. or 12 ga. caliber?

A good setup 12ga HD shotty with the right ammo [2 3/4] will hold 9 pellet 00 buck center mass on a Q target at 25 yards.

Home invasion situations is 5 to 7 yards on average.

Over penetration is possible but will not have energy or velocity after exiting BG to worry about.

Slugs for HD is a no-no imo.

If someone else will be using the HD shotty [wife, kids, elderly], 20ga would be my choice.
