What type of shells does everyone use for home defense?

I thought about putting this in our ammunition section, but I though it might be more prudent here.

I have a Maverick 88 pump that I am considering keeping around for home defense. I've fired many types of shot and slugs through it, but I am sort of lost when it comes to buckshot brands/types. I have a box of 3" Remington 00 buck, a box of Hornady TAP 2 3/4" 00 buck and a few Winchester 3" 00 buck. I bought the Hornady rounds today because I got a decent deal on them, but they are shorter than the other buckshot I have. I have 3" BB steel shot and slugs too but neither really seems correct for home defense.

I use S&B 00# buck mixed 9 and 12 pellet loads.
The last time I bought some I think I payed 4.86 for 10 rd box.
