Most people settle on 00 as the go to buckshot for defense because each pellet is reasonably effective, but some people value quantity as a quality of it's own. In Vietnam special forces favored 000 buck as the go to buckshot for the better coverage of the jungle, they also sometimes had duckbill chokes to make wide shot patterns and those chokes only work with 000 buck shot or smaller.
