Default sighting in my slug barrel

Got a 1-4x scope for early Christmas and went to sight it in. I just got this SXP field/slug combo over the summer and just decided for these last few weeks of the season that I want to give up on hunting the fields and go deeper into the woods.

I purchased 2 boxes of the blue Federal Sabot to see if they group decently; because, if so, then that's the way to go... they're by far the cheapest sabots out there.

The first picture is my 1st 3 trigger pulls with the Federal at 50 yards. I figured that was a keeper so centered those and left myself 3 rounds for walking/stalking tomorrow.

I had 1 box of the next cheapest stuff.. Winchester Super X BRI sabots; so, figured I'd send a 2 rounds down to see what happens... which is the second picture.... very pleased with that group; but, it to low for me to use tomorrow.

Is it worth it to pass on $7/box Federals and switch to $12/box BRIs? I consider myself lucky to group well with basic slugs... That fancy $18/box stuff just plain hurts.

Shoot what shoots best in your gun. Price means nothing if accuracy suffers.
