Anyone tried these for defense work? I've tried the 12 GA 4B+1B (7 4s and 4 1s)and they are impressive. Mine mike 1.34 inches COL and clock 1150 fps with remarkably low recoil. Essentially, they double the capacity of your magazine.

Catch is that they don't cycle well in all pumps - good in Win 1300 and less than perfect in Rem 870. Since I have an 870, I'm wondering how it might be modified (Aguila instructions say this is a simple fix).

Just trying to get a round out of the 12 GA that my wife and kids will shoot. Strictly home D for the non-shooter. These are about like a 410 for recoil, but more authority.
They do cycle through the Winchester 1300. Apparantly, they were originally designed for police use, which makes sense. They fall into the reduced recoil category which is becoming popular, and is quite effective.
