Federal sabots shoot best from my slug gun.
Joined: 4/2/2006Remington Core-Lokt Ultra 12 ga. 2 3/4″ 385 grain sabot slugs in my 870 SP rifled slug barrel with Leupold 1 X 4 scope. The Rem slugs are very accurate and expand perfectly, but I haven’t shot the latest Winchester or Federal sabot slugs so I can’t compare them.
Location: VAShot 3″ copper solids for years with great results but switched to Accu Tip and never looked back. They group better and I have only hunted 1 year with them but killed 2 at 160+ yards and watched then roll down the bank.
The only drawback is $24 for 5 shells WOW!!!My Buck killing skills are sick – too bad there not contagious!!!
Joined: 5/8/2008My buddy used the Hornady SST’s out in OH this past season with good results.He took four deer,and actutally recovered 2 slugs.Absoulutely perfect text book mushrooms.For our trip this year my Winchester 1300 is getting stuffed with SST’s.
(I didn’t vote in the poll as I don’t have any experience with any of those)
Federal Barnes expander 3/4 oz.
Location: WisconsinHaven’t slug hunted in some time, but when I did, Brenneke’s got the nod.
Joined: 7/17/2004I have not used a slug gun for years as I now prefer a MLR with a Hornady SST so if I were looking for a slug load I would definitely test the Hornadys out. I know what they do in a MLR. Accurate, powerful, and devestating on deer.

2 3/4″ 1900 fps…. 2″ sub groups at 150 yrds (i’ve put closer) … the most accurate and deadly slug i have ever used.
Joined: 7/29/2007How many of you that use the Remington’s have mossbergs? I’m just wondering. I have a mossberg 500 slugger and have shot the sst’s and lightfields out of them. They both kill very well but once you get out past about 80yards my groups start opening up. Like I said, just wonderingMy Savage 210F (bolt action 12G) shoots 3″ shells, and is very, very accurate with Winchester 3″ Partition Golds…..
I have to say, that I simply love the 210F shotgun. With the fully rifled barrel, black synthetic stock, 3-9×32 scope, and very nice bolt action, it is very hard to beat.
