Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.

I have always and will continue to use Winchester Sabot 2 3/4" slugs. I am down right afraid of 3 1/2" slugs...no thank you.

My turkey hunting buddy has a shotgun set for 3.5 and I think that the barrels interchangeable from smooth bore full choke to rifled barrel. Let me check with him and I'll get back to you.

a lot of duck and turkey guns will use this ammmo.please read your barrel before loading any ammo into your gun to mae sure it can handle such a load.the results are horrible if ya dont

I personally have never found a use for anything 3 inch or more. Maybe if I was waterfowl hunting and needed to reach out there a little more but for everything else 2 3/4 works for me. I've found alot of times that the 2 3/4 patterned better than the 3 inch anyway. Whatever you choose just make sure you practice with it to make sure it shoots good in your gun. Good luck in your search.
