    Remington HD Ultimate Home Defense Round

    anyone familiar with the duplex mixture of # 2's and 4"s?

    http://www.remington.com/products/ammunition/shotshell/home_defense/



    Remington HD Ultimate Home Defense shotgun ammunition features the same pellet material as the popular Wingmaster HD™ tungsten-bronze hunting ammunition and is offered in two loadings. Consumers can choose from a load of BB’s for the highest terminal energy or a duplex mixture of #2 and #4 pellets for excellent pattern density and outstanding stopping power with a reduced chance of over-penetration.


    Both loads are 12 gauge, 2 ¾-inch with 1 1/4 ounces of shot at 1250 feet per second. At the most commonly encountered home defense distances, Remington HD Ultimate Home Defense produces very tight patterns for one-shot confidence.

    HD Ultimate Home Defense ammunition is the perfect compliment to Remington’s recently expanded line of tactical shotguns. Recent additions to the line include the Model 870 Express® Tactical with XS® Ghost Ring Sights and the Model 870 Express Tactical with Gray Powder Coat Finish. Both shotguns are 12 gauge and feature 3-inch chambered 18 ½-inch barrels which are threaded for the included Tactical Extended Rem™ Choke. Average weight for both models is 7 ½-pounds, overall length is 38 ½-inches and both guns are equipped with a black synthetic stock and fore-end.

    50-55 pellets for 1 1/4oz BB size, loaded a bunch of these up last month with some Longshot behind them, moving at 1450 fps, ouch!

    I prefer #4 buck though, 27 .24" pellets

    but at HD ranges, even those duplex loads will be devastating; harder to 'fix' than a couple big buckshot holes. Can you imagine being a surgeon trying to remove and repair the damage from 50-200 pellets vs. just a few? ouch! course that's assuming the bad guy lives which isn't likely with a solid hit from a 12g at that range

    Lethal force is lethal force; this is just bird shot not an HD round for an shotgun. Also its 30 dollars for a box of ten you do the math; but I’m telling you it’s a stupid load to stake your life on.
