Winchester has brought out 2 new shotgun shell loadings for the personal home defense market… whether they were needed or not.
The 12 gauge loading is a 2 3/4" black plastic shell with a 1 oz slug and 3 plated 00 buckshot with Grex buffering. I have seen no explanation as to why a slug and buckshot is a better idea than a standard 9 shot buckshot load. They come in a rather flashy black, silver, red and gold lettered box with Supreme Elite on the outside.
There is also a .410 loading using 3 disc and some BB birdshot, intended for use in the Tarus Judge pistol. Again, can’t see where disc will be better than 3 000 buckshot, which is an older offering. Have even less knowledge of the reasoning behind the BB shot? I haven’t found a box of those yet but will. I hope to section both… sometime in the future.
