My thoughts are, if someone is breaking into my house and I have the choice between grabbing my shotgun, my carbine, or my pistol, I'll grab the pistol every time.

This choice has nothing to do with penetration of walls or stopping power, but everything to do with how maneuverable the firearm is. If I have to walk into a hallway and do a 180° sweep (look both left and right quickly) I need much less space than I do with a shotgun or carbine.

Plus, when coming up on a corner, the bad guy doesn't have the potential of seeing 12" of barrel and firearm prior to seeing me.

You can purchase all kinds of different home defense rounds for pistols that should either break up or have significant drop in kinetic energy after hitting a wall.

While I agree that it's your job to know what's behind the target you're aiming at, that's hardly the thing you're going to be worried about when that situation presents itself. You will be focused on one thing and one thing only: the intruder. And in that situation, you should have in your hands the weapon that you are most familiar with, regardless of whether it's a pistol, a shotgun, a carbine, a crossbow, a bow and arrow, a rock, a knife, or a rolling pin, etcetera. Whatever you're handy with, it's your job to know that the ammo you have for home defense is designed specifically for home defense. Beyond that, you're just making a blind guess at how the circumstances will turn out.

I keep two full magazines of home defense ammo for each firearm I have at the ready in case they're needed. The only thing the FMJ ammo does is sit in the box until it gets taken to the range for practice. That's the only thing that would ever worry me about any neighbors that exercise their 2nd amendment right.

Very good CamaroSkooter - true for peeling corners, etc. Excellent ammo options for home defense for the pistol.

Good stuff skooter... only thing I would change would be, most familiar, to, most dependable.

Another important consideration is how a B&E occurs. They usually happen so fast, your choice will be limited to what's handy.

I bet I know why he is selling it. He can't afford to shoot it anymore. At the gun show last weekend I was talking to a vendor about how much ammo has gone up in price. He showed me a box of 338 lupua and it was $150 for a box of 20.

I say contact the seller if it's not a scam it would be a good buy at $2700.

Avoid the Savage .338s. I have heard plenty about brass sticking in the chamber and the barrel is too light so it heats up way too fast.

You're not kidding. It's definitely expensive to shoot. I've been looking at bolt action rifles, and I think I'm going to stick to .308.

I need to get a reloading press so bad. My 700 is too expensive to shoot. .308 is what I should have gotten.

That's a tough call. I think 7.62/.308 is a great battle weapon, and you can reach out further with it. 5.56/.223 is obviously everywhere, and is cheaper to shoot. What other weapons do you have?

Nada. I'm 17 and my 700 was my first one... Well for NSA my dad's first weapon he let's me borrow
I want a pistol or an AR next. Some reason I try to buy the unnecessary which is why I may end up with the 7.62 lol. But the idea of cheaper ammo for the 5.56 is appealing...

Not just cheaper ammo...cheaper weapon and cheaper magazines.

I chose POF, and really like them, but there are so many weapons to choose from in so many different price ranges. Do you have a budget in mind?
