I am running Winchester 00 buck in my 870 right now and have been happy with it so far. I also want some slugs on board for various reasons. I was looking at the Brenneke KO slugs and they look awesome, but dont see them around here any where.

The PDX1 combo of a slug and shot looks like it would be darn effective and it is on store shelves. Thinking about trying it what say you?

It is ok for medium range I'd say.
After that, who knows where the pellets are going to go.

Here are two targets I shot with PDX1. One was with a Benelli M4
that comes with a modified choke, the other with a Nova with open
cylinder.

Pdx 410 works good in the judge at mid range. Have not tried the 12 gauge pdx.

Works great but to get the full benefit from it - you need to also lube the gun with Winchester snake oil. :tongueout:

Why not just stick with some nice 0 or 00 buck shot?

Yup. Use buck shot, supplement with a quick-loaded slug as needed. Mixing the two gets the worst of both, benefits of neither.

I've experimented with it. It's potent in terms of its potential to do damage, but I found the recoil a bit soft for a slug (Perhaps some room for powder is sacrificed for more shot load) and the spread on the buck is a bit too wide. My assumption is that the intention is to spread out the buck enough to use the buckshot as a backup if you miss with the slug, rather than simply hitting the target with everything like a typical buck and ball round.

Yup yup - Ive shot it at the range. It's- real expensive gimmick ammo. I have five rounds of it on my stock for what Ifs? But not for HD certainly not inside the jouse. My M930SPX is ghost loaded to the gills with Hornady TAP FPD 2 3/4" oo buckshot
The best of the best for the best is the best. Simple as the 4 bests !

I'd recommend Federal Tactical 00 buck w/ the Flite Control Wad.

The tightest patterning buckshot load I've found for either of my shotguns.

ATK may be coming out with a #1 buck load that may prove to be better, but I'll stick with 00 buck until the #1 proves itself in real shootings.
