An ounce of lead at 1200fps

Belladonna's new gun is a 16 gauge.  With a 30 inch barrel it seems to reach half way to the target.
There are not many situations that cannot be favorably resolved by an ounce of lead delivered at 1200fps...give or take a few hundred feet per second.

I bought 25 shells at a big box store.  The price on the shelf was $17.88   The price at checkout was $7.88.  I was planning to reload but I may have to pick up a few more boxes.  I am not sure how I would crimp the hulls.  Lee-Loadall does not come in a 16 gauge.
