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

Actually it was not my shot, but a friend was building a house next to a corn field.
The owners cousin shot a foster style slug at 134 yards. There was almost zero expansion but the doe died on the spot!
Drove the lawn mower to the field and picked her up

edge.

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

About 75yrds, not a long shot by no means,but what I was impressed with was I was told the barnes expander bullets would not expand unless i hit sholder bone. The corner of the bullet caught a rib. I hit it behind the sholder and It expanded all the way and was stop just by the hide on the other side. I thought the bullet did its job. It was about 100lb doe and it only went 20 yrds.

215 with 11-87 shooting the old winchester supreme 3". Only reason I took that shot was the neighbors wounded a doe and she needed to die.

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

Somewhere in the ball park of 250yrds with a Feredal Hydro Shock bullet with a 870 Wingmaster equiped with moms modified vented vib barrel. We had no way of measuring back then but 3 of us walked it off and approximated it to about 250yrds. I was about 15yrs old and we had just got done hunting the last day of the first season in ILL. We were all standing around the truck parked in the field next to the woods waiting on my uncle.He was always the last one out sqeezing the full legal shooting light to it's last minute. My dad and his friend from work were standing with me at the truck when a doe popped out of the brush about 100yrds from us and took of across the field in a hasty trot. My dad and his friend both with Thompson hawkins in hand watched her as I yell shoot her dad. They both laughed and said there is now way anyone is going to hit that deer. I grabbed moms 870 out of the case quickly chambered a round aimed 2 hieghts above and two paces in front of her as she was now a bit farther out. Just before I pulled the trigger my dad said your not going to come close don't bother. I aimed and shot and she kept running. My dad said see told you you'd miss. About 15-20 more steps she started tripping and stagering...then fell over and died. He said, I'll be damned you lucky sucker. NO B.S. I will never forget it to the day I die. They say the sun shines on every dogs a** some day

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

This past year I got my longest kill. About 70 yards with a Remington 870 20 gauge rifle (open) sights. Before that was about 40 yards. I like to hang out in the thick stuff.

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

147 yards ranged - Hunting from a treestand at the rear corner of one of my fields. I was using a 12 Ga. H&R UltraSlug gun with a Nikon 3x9 Slughunter scope with the BDC reticule and a Limbsaver recoil pad. The 3" non-tipped Federal Barnes Expander sabot slug dropped the 6-point where he stood feeding. 10 mins. into the season and my tag was on an antler.

Suggestions: (1) find out which sabot slug your gun prefers (this can be expensive)
(2) shoot your gun at measured ranges before hand and learn how the preferred slug handles the wind
(3) either use a good rangefinder or mark the field in advance so you know which aim-point to use and where to hold
(4) use a stand with a good rest built-in - any movement while aiming at over 100 yds will be magnified
(5) build your stand so you can hunt with your back to the morning sun
