We paced it off to around 260 yards last day of the season we were driving the swamp on the farm a big doe came running out in front of son inlaws brother and acsoss the cut bean field had my gun up waiting for him to shoot and I decided to shoot was a brodside shot I aimed way high and led it a lot, it hit low in the chest just behind the front leg 12ga hole on entry and about a 4inch hole comming out it fell and rolled got up ran another 60 yards and fell it
it was a luck shot to say the least
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?
