New shotgun slug?

Anybody on here thinking about changing their choice of sabot for their deer hunting?

Nope...I dont really hunt with a shotgun anymore. When I do take a shotgun I use Hornady SST slugs in a Remington 870 20 gauge with rifled deer barrel. They're accurate and flat shooting.

I've only used Remingtons accu tip slug [12 ga, 3 in], I forget the exact name but they look like they have an alien capsule on the tip. I only shot one deer with them (didn't get a shot last year during gun season). The slug passed though the big doe tearing up both sides of the rib cage and everything in between. Good enough for me.

WD,
I guess that's the one, I'll buy a box or two and see how they shoot compared to the Hornady SST's I usually use. Thanks Wisconsin deer!

HM,
Just looking at what is mentioned here might be a good starting point but take your wallet, It can run 2 to 2.25$ per shot. Let us know how you make out and good luck.
