Cautionary Tale: Birdshot is for Birds – Bad Guys require 00 Buckshot

Old_Painless: “I received a note from a police officer that asked me not to mention names or locations about this true event.

A police officer was involved in some shotgun training, where they used #6 birdshot in the training due to lower cost. After the training session, he forgot to remove the birdshot and replace it with 00 Buckshot, the normal carry load.

That night, while on patrol, he confronted a couple of burglars and was in a shootout with them. He shot both of them with his shotgun, but forgot that he had it loaded with birdshot.

They killed the officer and escaped.

Never use birdshot against goblins. Use plated 00 Buckshot.”

“Old_Painless” Tests Cheap 9mm Ammo Accuracy

The complete test details are here:

Old_Painless: “We shot several groups with the following:

Handloads, 115 grain Remington JHP, 5.0 gr. WW 231.

Winchester White Box 9mm.

Wolf 9mm.

And Blazer 9mm.

Lessons learned:

1. Our general opinion as to accuracy is that they were good. Wolf was best, next Winchester White Box, and then Blazer. But all were accurate.

2. All ammo functioned 100%. I had carried this Glock 34 to Thunder Ranch three times, and it has never failed.

3. We have over 80+ years of handloading and make some good handloads. We use a Dillon press. But the factory stuff was slightly better accuracy-wise than our stuff. The difference in price is very small.

Bottom Line: You can’t justify handloading at the present low prices of this cheap 9mm ammo.

And even though it is relatively cheap, it is plenty accurate.”

The Shotgun Meets the Box O’ Truth

by Old_Painless

“I built the “Box O’ Truth”.

This is the Box.

The purpose of the Box is to test the penetration of various rounds.

People often say, “I think…”. “I suppose…”, “I bet…”, when discussing facts like penetration of ammunition.

There is only one way to know how much a certain round penetrates.

You must shoot it into a medium and see for a fact.

The Box O’ Truth is loaded with 12 sheets of 5/8″ sheetrock, backed up by a jug of water to try to “catch” anything that might penetrate all 12 boards.

It is backed-up by a wall of bricks.

I tried a variety of different shotgun loads.

Lessons learned:
