    Yes ditch the led sled I don't know how I missed that before, its not helping you at all! Its a solution to a no existent problem wrapped in clever marketing.

    I have an hr but it to liked 3 inch accutips better the 2/3. Also did not like to be cleaned. Go at least ten shots. Sounds crazy but mine sucked the groups right down to nothing.

    From many years of slug hunting (all that was legal in Indiana for all my life till last year or so) I have found that more often than not slug guns well shoot the cheap rem. and win. slugs the best.;-)

    Also I have had many slug guns that would not shoot sabots at all. So I would pick up some rem sluggers,fed. power shok, win super-x, and brenneke K.O..

    And the best thing is you can try all four of these the price of two boxes of any of the others ;-)

    something else you might try get a anticant level for about 23 dollars you might be tipping the gun to the side just enough to spread your group out. some times if you set up a target that has cross lines crooked you may be lining up on the lines with the crosshairs and tipping the gun. Heres a link for a anticant level on midway,
