Re: most accurate long range shotgun.

I have a Benelli M1 with a rifled choke. Seems I can usually get 3 holes touching at 100 yds. (from a rest) with Hornady SST slugs and a cheap Simmons 1.5X -4X shotgun scope. Saboted slugs are HORRIBLE!

Yeah, a fully rifled Benelli barrel would be nice but here in the west a Browning A-Bolt .300 Win. mag rifle is my toy of choice.

Later I'll be getting a Desert Tactical Arms in the same caliber. Just have to wait for a year backlog.

Re: most accurate long range shotgun.

You can easily spend a lot of money for very very little in return. Stay with what you have.

Add a Nikon slug hunter scope. Learn your actual drops per line. Practice to 250 and 300 and use a good rangefinder.

Love my Remington 870 with a pinned barrel.

But found a Browning A-bolt. Guys says it drives tacks. Set up with a scope and boxes of slugs to go. New theses are over a grand. They now come in camo.

God Bless

Jeff

Re: most accurate long range shotgun.

Bounty Hunter I think you are correct sir. I have both the Nikon and leupold slug scopes and decided on leupold, only because the rectical fit me better at long range. The Nikon is far better for short range though. I am sure the ammo is the limited factor here. After 200 yards the energy falls off tho fast similar to my 458 socom. I think I am done spending money on my longrange shotgunning for the time being thanks for all the info.
