If you can sit for 2 days in 80 degree temps and tons of mosquitos you are obviously a man of GREAT resolve! Seriously though, that long range slug gun business is ok only with a rock solid rest. I have mostly metal ladder stands with shooting rails and the ground where I can hunt is mostly wide open fields, very little timber, so the long distance stuff was born out of necessity, like you said when the circumstances prevail. I would really like to find a barrel with a 1:26 or 28 twist, but haven't been able to find anyone making one. There was a company in Wisconsin called Badger Barrel Co. that did offer them, but I guess they stopped, can't even get a hold of them anymore. Have a great hunting season!!!
