CoyoteWallace....I would steer you in the direction of a Remington model 870-Express Combo, which comes with a rifled slug barrel for that pump action. I myself limit my shots to 100 yards with iron sights. I can hit a 9 inch pie plate at that distance, most of our shots are well under 60 yards. I once cut a 3 inch sappling in half and still got my buck as it ran passed. The slug made a very nice silver dollar exit wound on the buck's off side.

Re: Slug gun advice/Help

since for some odd reason, i cant start a new thread in this sub forum, ill ask here


i have a 1187 12ga, with cantilever bbl and rifled choke tube.

last trip to the range, i tried some federal premium Barnes® Expander® Tipped

they came out sidways, not stable at all

tried Speer . Fusion, the didnt fly sidways, but count get it to group either

tried a few Winchester Super-X sabots, not great eiter



any ideas?

anyone use a rifled choke tube have luck with anything?

would standard slugs be better?

would slugs be more accurate out of a improved cylinder, or the rifled tube?

Re: Slug gun advice/Help

I can't start a new thread in this sub forum either.

Does anyone have any comments on the Mossberg 20ga 500 pump slug gun?

A friend of mine is looking at it for deer season this year.

I think your problem with the Barnes slugs is that the barrel should be fully rifled as the slugs aren't spinning fast enough.

Try loading the Lyman sabot slug, alsdo try an improved cyl choke tube or even a mod.
