Home defense longgun: Remington 11-87 (12ga) or Steyr AUG-Z (.223)?

In my search for the optimal home defense longgun I came to the following choice:

1. Remington 11-87, 18"

2. Steyr AUG-Z

Which of these would you prefer?

The .223 offers more accuracy e.g. in hostage situations. It also offers more capacity (43 rds). And with the right ammo, overpenetration is not an issue.

The 12ga offers more destructive/stopping force and energy, but also less capacity and no accuracy for hostage or human-shield situations.
