Real world difference between 3” vs 2 3/4” 00 buckshot for home defense.

    Selling my old 870 2 3/4 “ and thinking of rem 870 dm w/3” capability. Anything really to be gained here in home defense situation. Thanks rick

    In my opinion you would be gaining nothing especially for home defense. Shells more expensive. More recoil for the most part.

    Carried a Remington 870 for over 25 years..always used 2 3/4” shells. Still do but now in a Mossberg 930 SPX.

    Nothing really to gain in a home defense situation, just a few pellets. At the close ranges of home defense, the bad guy isn't going to notice. I actually prefer the 2 3/4 shells as they kick less.
