"When you are in your house and shooting 00 buck you are basically shooting the equivilent of nine 357 magnums in your house or apartment if using a 2-3/4" shell."

Just an important correction, without attitude, in that...

The 158 gr. (0.36 ozs.) 357 Mag at 1,485 fps is very powerful. A 55 gr. (0.125 ozs.) 00 Buckshot pellet at 1,325 fps is comparatively weak. Nine of them make a difference but, and this is ironic 45Long, it is more like firing nine .32 Long Colt blackpowder cartridges from 1875.

A 3" 000 Buck Mag is closer to firing 10 .380 ACP + P.
