Are there any types of 12 gauge loads you shouldnt use for home defense?

Are there any types of 12 gauge loads you shouldn't use for home defense? I don't mean things like flechette or flamethrower loads, im not sure why anyone would use those types of loads. I mean like buck & ball or other loads that could seen as "overkill". My main area of focus is the inevitable court case that'll follow in the event of a self defense shooting. Could triple ought buck or buck and ball or slugs be used against you by the prosecution in the court case? Would scatter shot be a safer bet to use in a case like that?
