I left a comment about that on the muzzleloading forum when I saw your post about Bad Bull. Good grief, what a rifle, and good grief again what a price tag-$3950!!

Should be able to with the higher velocity sabots or reloaded with a sabot and a bullet drop compensator scope. With the bolt actions, single shots, or a little tweaking with the pumps.

OnHoPr,
just got my current issue of American Hunter. On page 60 they have an article on Federal Trophy Copper Slug that may make the topic of longer range slug shooting a lot more interesting. Now if i can just get my hands on some of them to try. If you find who has them let me know.

Those look good, but I have seen on threads in other forums where the all copper slug didn't expand. I have seen them on the berm of shooting ranges still almost completely in the same configuration as loaded, probably at the longer ranges, also (OP). There are a number of shooters that kill deer with them though. My comments weren't directly considering the (name brand) ammo but the firearms for witch the possible ammo could be shot more accurately. I have shot decent groups with SSTs, Rem 385 gr sabots, and the Fed powr shok sabot, though. Have you ever though of an accurizing kit for your pumps? Check out the Manufacturers forum.

I don't shoot a pump I have the old Savidge 210 bolt which shoots pretty good.
I'm actually thinking about one of the new single shot break actions

Last year I got some venison from a friend who took two doe with his slug gun.He said the longest shot required calculating a 13 inch drop.He had a range finder and a drop chart on the gun stock.He's an ex marine sniper,so he should know his ballistics.I'm guessing it was over 200 yards.
