Am I stupid for considering 2.75" 00-buck for my shotgun over the 3"? When I am out having fun there is nothing quite like the 3" But I am thinking that in a home defense scenario that the more manageable 2.75" rounds might be smarter..... Any opinions? I've got to say - if there is ever "one gun" that I go to - to it my 18" Remington 870.... I love that gun to death! I can hit targets fairly far out with slugs, 00-buck makes a great "impact", and I can even hit clay pigeons with it.
