Re: Looking for a good Deer Slug Gun
My 870 in 20 guage doesn't kick too bad with slugs. When I'm practicing in the months leading up to gun season I'll shoot 10-15 rounds at a time. By 15 I'm just a little bit sore, not much, but why keep shooting after you start to feel it?
The 12's do kick more, substantially more.
Modern day rifled slug barrels with sabot slugs are shooting machines though. Fiance's brother in law dropped a doe at 183 yards 2 years ago with a scoped rem 870. I haven't shot on farther than 70 yards with mine, but they're not the pumpkin balls of years ago.
Shoot Safe, Shoot Often
