Re: Which Slug for an 870 slug gun?

I second that buy a H&R if you only need one shot. Keep the rem for fast shooting. On my 870 I have a Hastings 24" with muzzle break 1 1/2 groups at 100 yds. with Barnes non-tipped expanders. They no longer make those and switched to a copper solids. I should sell that barrel I paid more for the Hastings barrel than I did a H&R combo! I use my Rem bird barrel with im.cyl for under 100 yards and driving deer. I can get on a deer real fast with out a scope. And it makes 3" groups all day with cheap winchester rifled slugs. The H&R will stack em on top of another at 100 with Accutips. So, how often did you need a second shot?
