The shot used in this ammunition is copper plated. Copper plating is typically found on higher-end performance oriented shells and provides protection to the lead shot when the cartridge is fired. Copper-plated shot deforms less and stays in formation better, delivering a more concentrated blow to your target with reduced risk of "flyers" going way outside the pattern.
While these shells are certainly powerful enough to injure targets bigger than turkeys; however, they are not optimal for home defense due to their power and recoil. Try a lower-recoiling 2-3/4" load firing larger buckshot for a more efficient self-defense solution.
Winchester ammunition is loaded in Oxford, Mississippi and comes in many variants optimized for multiple types of hunting and sporting use as well as self-defense and law enforcement.
