    I ran some Fiocchi low recoil 00 buck through my Mav 88 this morning to see how it handled and patterned in close quarters and as advertised there was very little recoil and I was getting a 2" spread at 14'. The Mav 88 is my night time go to gun so I like keeping it cruiser ready with low recoil buckshot....

    Multi-Defense Buck and Ball 2.75" shells with one .65 caliber lead ball, and six #1 buck pellets.

    I was using my Mav 88 with these buck and ball and they kick like a mule, more recoil than I comfortable with using a pistol grip and I have the Houge tamer and I still felt a little sting in the web of my hand. The #1 buck offered up littleor no spread at 16ft but what got my attention was the penetration of the .65 caliber lead ball.....it past through 5" of ice and 6 1/2" of treated wood and rolled to a stop between my backstop and barn wall, so I won`t be shooting these inside any longer.

    I would be comfortable enough to load these up and walk into the woods anywhere in the lower 48 and feel safe.

    Curiosity got the best of me so I decided to try one through my Winchester....still kicks like a mule but more controlable. Buck and ball cut a hole through 3 1/2" of treated wood and stopped in the paving stone.

    I put the orginal stock back on my Mav 88 this morning and ran some 8 shot through just for grins......

    I normally use a low recoil buckshot or #4 buck but up close and personal this birdshot will make an individual re-evaluate their decision making process.

    A little Friday fun with the Mav 88...
    I was working on controlled pairs from 14ft.
    I was getting about 2.5 seconds between shots and while keeping on center with about a 4" spread with this Winchester 00.
