I have pretty good luck out of the Brenneke Heavy Field Short Mag aka "Green Lightning" rounds with a 870wingmaster smoothbore with a 4in circle out at 100yds. This is my old reliable gun/backup gun but in my current gun which is an 870 with a rifled barrel shooting the sst rounds and that can get the group down to 2inches at 100yds. Both guns are scoped and 12 gauges. Either way they both get the job done.

The last two deer I shot with Honady SST's (300 gr.) dropped where they stood.

my 870 is heading down to S. Ohio after Thanksgiving, it's scoped and will shoot where I put the crosshairs.
