Looking at the 870 deer rifle Improved cylinder Rem. #5565. Really just looking for all purpose shotgun. I have a bunch of 2 3/4 inch shells #4 and 6 shot for home defense. Can I shoot regular shot shells out of this model, along with other types of slugs? Thanks.

If that's not an all purpose shotgun, it comes very close.

4s and 6s will work for HD. So will, in all probability, breath mints. Ranges are close, time frames short, and shotguns have oodles of energy to transfer.

There's lots of stuff in the Archives in this. A search will give you more information than is good for you(G)....
