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?

I guess I not sure what you mean
"Normally, smooth bore shotguns shoot sabot slugs into patterns rather than groups"
as I said it was purely a lucky shot as for how much drop I couldnt tell you I just aimed very high and led way out in front where the slug came out it hit a rib and made the big exit I have since added a nikon slughunter with BDC scope to my shotgun and have taken several deer from my elevated stand from 55yards to 140 yards in a open field and a coyote at 130 yards all with a slug. I am not an expert marksman but I do shoot alot and did not post the long range shot to bragg I just posted it telling it did happen as the thread starter asked for your longest shot with a slug I was as suprised as the others that I hunt with that seen the shot.

125 yards
Stand hunting a hedgerow in the middle of our farm, I'm watching the far edge, where a buck has been showing himself. I hear a crack, and there are 4 deer below me@ 10 yards. I shoot over the top of the biggest doe, and they scatter. I keep the gun on one which stopped in the middle of the field, and head shot her. What a mess.
Ithaca 37 20guage, open sights lightfield sabots.

I have taken a Whitetail buck at 155 yds with a Marlin 512 shooting Remington Buckhammer 3" Magnum. After I figured out what kind of slugs my gun liked to shoot it has performed well. In Oklahoma's thick blackjacks it really works well on hogs. I have not had to track one yet. Lot's of fun to shoot as well.
