I think that is a solid plan.Automag wrote:Yeah i've thought about it all, ammo choice and changovers. I hate to admit it, but i'd forgot some of the important lessons learned in the Military. We only used shotguns for breaching and close quarters situations, otherwise we carried an M4 or M16A2 w/wo M203's and some heavier weapons. But maily it's all kinda the same, keeping your weapon loaded, and if necessary, doing ammo changes. So yeah, i appreciate ya'll kinda tellin me to think about it, and i did. If i ever do have a HD situation, i want all 00 Buck in my mag, and a couple slugs and then 00 Buck on my sidesaddle. I'm goin shooting this weekend with my brother and get some much needed trigger time.
Thanks for all the advice, i took it well--lol.
I don't think there is anything wrong with all buck or all slugs depending on your need but mixing ammo in the mag for H/D is probably the last thing I would be thinking about. Military and LE I can see the first couple or rounds breaching and then some 00 Buck if you had to make entry or something. Kind of like people keeping shot rounds in the first one or two cylinders of a wheelgun in snake country. For me 00buck in the gun, 2 slugs and 4 more 00 buck on the saddle.
That's what makes these things fill so many rolls. Different ammo for HD, less lethal, bear country, hunting etc...
