I'd choose a Foster over anytype of buckshot, but the Brenneke are known for better penetration. Seems like I've seen Alaska Trooper episodes where they were carrying Brennekes as well.
I would also choose Dixie's Tri Ball Buckshot round over most slug rounds! I can't help but think that 960 grains of hard cast lead in the form of three 22 gauge, (.60"), pellets fired from a 12 bore at some 1100+ fps would do massive damage to any grizzly or polar bear at defensive ranges.
