A friend of mine took two deer with his shotgun this past season.I don't know all the details.He has a scoped,rifled barrel gun with a drop chart on the stock.He ranged the deer with his range finder and calculated a 15 inch drop at 180 yards on one of them.He dropped it with one shot.I got some bologna and sweet sticks out of it.

3.5" shells dont give you anymore power.All you get is a heavier load with the same powder load as a 2.75" shell. if you do a little ballistics check on them you will see you get better ballistics from a 2.75" shell. I think most people thing they or a better load is from the extra kick they give. Thats just from them havibg to push a heavier load

Born on a mountain raised in a cave huntin and fishin is all I crave
