Re: Need a new slug gun

What kind of groups @ 100 yds. are you getting? And what slugs are you shooting?

Good Luck.

Re: Need a new slug gun

Im using remington copper solid sabots, and i shot 1 1/2 inch group, good shooting for me with a shot gun. When i first started shooting a shotgun, many years ago, i gave myself a half moon on my forehead, and still cant shoot a shotgun as relaxed as i can a rifle.
ps the scar is still there lolol

Re: Need a new slug gun

I shoot a Rem 870 with cantilevered barrel. It shoots 3" Lightfield slugs just under 2" at 100 yds with a factory trigger. If I was to buy a new slug gun I would get a copy of my wife's slug gun. She shoots a 20 ga H&R single shot topped with a Leupold 2x7 (same scope I have). The gun has a great trigger, shoots excellent, and kicks less than half as my teeth jaring 12 ga.

+1 more for the 220. Picked mine up two weeks ago and love it. I completely forget I'm shooting a shotgun. (You could call it a rifle??) I wish you could take them coyote hunting here, I hate having to wait until November.
