Converting a Turkey Gun Part II

Based on advice here, I bought a flush mount Carlson's IC choke for my 870 turkey gun. I also got a box of Fiocchi Reduced Recoil LE OO buckshot.

I finally got the range tonight and tried them out. The first 3 pics where at 8yds. The last one at 18yds. Seems to open up pretty fast. The sheets of paper are 17" x 17". What do you think of this for Home Defense? We have a small 997 sq ft house, so there really aren't any long shots I could/would take.

I did feel the Fiocchi was a very soft shooting load, an important point as I will be having my wife practice with whatever load I go with. Do you recommend I try any other buckshot loads?
