Default Best slug gun under $350

Does anyone know of a slug gun under 350 I prefer a 20 gauge but if a 12 is all I got I'll take it and I want to be able to kill a deer at 100 yards and I don't want a single shot

You are asking for quite a lot for under $350, and be able to reach out to 100 yds. You may be able to find a shotgun, with rebates, for under $350. I think Remington has there 870's on rebate now. You will need a good scope separate than what it comes with, if it comes with one. A good scope, recommended/designed to be shot with slugs, will run you around $150+. If you willing to sacrifice and go with a single shot, you will be more in line with what you are looking for. You could also check for used guns as well. I bought a Mossberg 500 combo (slug barrel w/scope and bird barrel) from Dick's Sporting Goods for $379.00, but had to get a better scope. Good Luck.

You can get a Mossberg 500 Combo. It comes with a bird barrel & a rifled barrel with a factory bore sighted scope mounted on it. Dick's Sporting Goods has them on sale now for $350 plus an additional $20 off.

Here's a picture of it without the scope.

I've got a Mossberg 500 20ga that i bought for around 250 new. Bird barrel only then i found a fully rifled with mounted cantilever scope for $150 from Mossberg. Its our kids/ loaner gun and with Brennekes short field magnums it will shoot nice groups at 100 yards. This past weekend it took deer from 25 yards out. Nephew took a doe at a measured 110 yards with 6" holdover. Your asking for alot for $350 but if you jump up $100-$200 its certainly reasonable. I traded the bird barrel off btw and got 8 boxes of the Brennekes($48 or so) and a sling and swivel set, and a "butt out" deer dressin thingy($9). Be creative and you may get something for $350 or less. Lots of gun on sale now for christmas and hunting seasons winding down.

If you only needed one shot at 100 yard the H&R single shot is a great gun
but you still need a good scope
