USA -(AmmoLand.com)- After more than six months of waiting, Oath Ammunition finally released their promised Tango Shotgun round.

To see if the nearly $10.00 per shot ammo is worth the hype, Clark Armory sent a box to GBGuns for ballistics gel testing.

Anything that carriers approximately 2,000 foot pounds of energy is going to do some real damage to ballistics gel. As shown in this gel test, the expansion diameter of the OATH shell, is what really sets it apart.

It took me five months to receive my order of ten 12 gauge Tango rounds, the aluminum cased ones. None of them, I mean none of them would even load in my shotguns (Mossberg 500, Remington 870, and even a couple break action shotguns) The lip on the casing is too thick for the breech to fully go into battery and for the extractor to wrap around and lock up. I contacted the company and they apologized and had me send them back and stated they solved the problem and would send me new ones. About a month later I… Read more »

I’ll stick with either 00 or #4 buckshot. Having watched what it does in gel, I feel sure that pretty much where I hit a perp, he’s either dead or wishes he was.
Even cheap buckshot (I shoot Royal; I have had no problems with in in well over a thousands rounds) will do the trick.
If I were using something like an AR or AK for home defense, yes, I’d need something other than plain ball ammo to make use of all the energy available. But buckshot out of a 12 gauge just works.

00 Buck or rifled slugs work really well.
Both of our 9mm home defense weapons are chambered with Oath Ammo hollow points.

From what I’ve seen, at normal interior distances (10 yards or less), there’s little difference between 00 and #4 buckshot. Patterning my Mossberg at 10 yards with either one shows a spread of under 10 inches (usually about 7~8″). With 9 or 21 pellets, the effect is pretty much the same. Slugs are not my choice; there are a few reasons for this. They tend to go through a lot of things (moreso than buckshot) if I miss. Also, in case of SHTF in my home, and I use a slug, I can foresee a prosecutor using my choice of… Read more »

Awesome looking impact, but, really, is the Oath more of an advantage than a hot load of buck priced at a tenth of what this new round costs?

Agreed. I love ot see firearm and ammo innovation but I don’t have the silver spoon to pay for it. I’ll stick to this:
