Ordered a couple boxes to play with. I've heard some pros and cons about these but never actually tried them. Anyone with any experience with them, feel free to share. I will in a few days. Here's the mug shot of the box.

I bought mine from cheaper than dirt.

I'd imagine. Lower recoil, etc. You can fit 10 in a 7rnd mag tube which I guess is good for a gang intrusion. But you'd probably need a 2nd shooter instead of more rounds for that type situation.

These are not bad really. They have very little recoil and pattern very tight. Not sure how deep they would penetrate seeing as how they are lower velocity. I can't think of any real benefit they would offer over a 2 3/4 shell though. The only reason I can see to use the 2 inch mini buck, is in case a midget breaks in.

They'll probably under-penetrate like mad. I wouldn't use them as defensive ammo without seeing some test-results. Probably not even after, if my suspicions about their penetration pan out...

This idea is not that new. I remember seeing something similar back in the mid '90s. At 1250fps it is packing more fps than federal or winchester 2 3/4 "low recoil" offerings. Not sure how that translates into energy at any distance, but it doesn't appear to be a heavily reduced power load, just a trimmed shell/wad with 3 less pellets than a 2 3/4. Don't get me wrong, I'm not gonna run out and buy any, but, Centurion has been known to produce decent quality shotshells so they may indeed be something worthwhile.

They won't cycle in a semi and it takes practice to get them to feed half assed in a pump, cool concept, but not much more.
