Re: Gotta get a slug gun for a specific hunting area
Go for the 20 ga versus the 12 ga.
The savage 220F is super nice and accurate. $500 or so
The H&R 20 ga slug guns are under $300 and very accurate. Single shots
Encore 20 ga slug single shot $500 I have this one and killed deer at 176 yards.
all above are very capable of sub 2" groups at 100
any pump or auto with removable barrel is normally going to give groups of 3-4" tops most of the time due to barrel receiver sloppiness. some will beat that and some will be way over.
Nikon makes a BDC scope for slugs that works real well out 200 as long as you use a rangefinder.
Slugs to start with:
the 2 3/4s are normally more accurate than the 3 inchers. Plus recoil is a lot lot less.
2 box of cheap win 1oz lead slugs to zero and get on paper. $7 total
Try the Hornady SSTs, Rem sabots, Federal sabots and then Win. One box of several to test 2 shots and see if they will group. Remember, if 2 will not group, 3 will definitely not group. Try to share a box with someone as the sabots run $15-20 a box
The Lightfield series are super good and shoot well in almost all guns.
