Don't misunderstand me. I'm not arguing against the effectiveness of buckshot, it is devastating But for my house, my "things go bump in the night", home invasion scenario shotgun, the turkey loads are my first choice. I have zero reservations about their effectiveness at the ranges I would be using them.
I understand completely, we are all entitled to our opinions and I respect your choice based on your experience and your HD application.
I hope neither of us ever find ourselves in a situation where we have to use our shotguns for self defense, but if we do I hope our loads work.
