Re: What Is Your Longest Shotgun Slug Big Game Kill?

This winter I made my longest slug kill ever. I shot a very nice size doe at a laser measured 167 yds. My gun is a Savage 210 12 gauge with a Nikon 2-7x scope and shooting Winchester Platinum Tips 2 3/4 slugs. The situation had to be perfect for me to even attempt the shot. There was no wind. The large doe was standing braodside against a snowy hillside. I had a dead solid rest and time to confirm the range with my leica range finder. She took one shot took about 5 steps and toppled over. I hit right at the back of the lungs, almost a gut shot. Bullet passed completey through, which surprised me. This was the most exciting part of what was a horrible hunting season here in Iowa.

You've got many firsts here.
Normally, smooth bore shotguns shoot sabot slugs into patterns rather than groups.
Hitting a deer with any rifle sighted slug gun at 260 yards would seem impossible, but on the run ??? Very impressive.
You got much better expansion than I would have predicted, both at entry and exit, for a sabot slug at that range.
Congratulations on making this most unusual shot. How much bullet (slug) drop did you experience?
