Well, I recommend a step load... either 2 3/4" 00 or 000 buck with two 2 3/4" slugs to end the tube. Just load the slugs first and then the buck shot you could also go with #3 buck, but I love that 000 - you have eight pellets the size of a .38! *****en!

this looks like a pretty good test:

it looks like #4 or #1 shot might be good for an apartment dweller.

Federal makes a Tactical buckshot thats main purpose is low recoil and lower penetration in a buckshot it is called, POWER*SHOK® LOW RECOIL BUCKSHOT or Tactical LE. They claim 2 sheets of wallboard at 10 feet. check out the links for yourself. They are likely the same round. The law enforcement stuff is nickle plated.
