Re: which caliber for all around use?
no, wasn't saying spray and pray at all just because of more bullets; but instead of one well aimed shot, I prefer 20 well aimed shots, hahaa! I make each one count but as quick as I can. When someone or something is trying to take my life, I leave not a shred of doubt that the SOB is DRT! dead right there
A full magazine to the nugget erases any doubt that it's still alive.
.410 is a good round but the 12 has more options especially for buckshot and combo loads. I love my little .410 on the skeet range, bird hunting, even slinging OOO buck at coyotes.
you can load your 12 down to a 24gram international load but ya can't load a .410 up to 12g loads. so all around with all things considered, I think the 12g is king.
