Birdshot is named because it’s designed to pluck small flying animals from the sky, not incapacitate large, angry aggressive ones. While it might work in a pinch, birdshot has a terrible track record as a defensive round.
When Harry Whittington was accidentally shot in the face at 30 yards by Vice President Dick Cheney, he survived – even after one of the pellets struck Whittington in the heart.
A better choice is 12-gauge, double-aught buckshot. This has long been considered the gold-standard for home defense and combat use for good reason. This load propels nine, 8.4mm lead pellets at roughly 1,200 fps.
This load is like firing nine, .38 Special rounds into a target simultaneously. This is tremendously more effective at creating hydrostatic shock in soft tissue than super light steel birdshot.
Course is 4 hours.
