I use these slugs in a Remington 1187 and they are very accurate. Both paper and field. I've heard some people claim they can hit 150+ yards, but I personally don't take those shots. I'm solid from 100 yards and in.

Are you referring to me? and what are you thanking me for?

Slugs

I shoot the remington 3 inch Buckhammer in a 12 ga 870 and they group very well at 100 yards. If I have a good rest that is. I usually use a shooting vice it works well for me.

I use an 870 12ga with a smooth bore and the remington managed recoil rifled slugs. Gets the job done with no problem. A box of 5 cost less than $3.50 at Walmart and the kick is practically non-existent. But I wouldn't push them beyond 100 yards for deer and 50 yards for bear.

personally i use a Mossberg 500 series 20 Ga... i have both the acu choke barell and the riffled slug barell... i have shot the same version of this gun in the 12 gauge and i prefer the 20 actually... and for the noisy slide ITS EASY TO FIX!!!!! just a few min of your time and sime thinking... now with the slug barell i will ONLY use Winchester Super X Sabot rounds... with them and some pratice there is no reason why u cant take a deer at 100 yds with open sight, i love everything about my shotgun and i highly recomend it to everyone... and one thing alot of ppl dont beleive untill they shoot my gun with my slugs... is that i kicks just as hard if not harder then the 12 gauge... i proved someone wrong the other week when we were shooting, he said its impossible and i let him shoot it and then he shut his mouth and asked how much it cost... few weeks later he sold his 12 gauge mossberg 500 and got the 20... GREAT GUN!!!

Smile don't be discouraged

don't be discouraged. i hunt in ny and until recently have only hunted with a slug gun. i have always used a mossburg model 500 w/ a smooth bore and bead sight, but a ithica deerslayer is a much better gun. the mossburg pump action is a little loose and noisy. i have never had to shoot a deer past 40 yrds and only use a second shot b/c i can't watch a deer die slowly at those kind of ranges.
