Mossberg 695 slug choices

I have been shooting my Mossberg 695 slug gun and I have tried the light field 2 3/4 Hybred Exp and 3 inch Hybred Elite....both perform great at 50 yds but I was not happy at 100 yds. Who has the same gun and what slugs are you shooting with good groups at 100 yds ? Any one try Winchester slugs?

Remington 3" copper solids used to do 2" 3 shot group at 100yds never wanted to try for a 5 shot group shoulder used say that's good enough

Re: Mossberg 695 slug choices

Let me guess the lightfields drop like a rock.... I am looking for a slug also. Its difficult to find that magic bullet! I have collecting boxes of slugs to text.

Its been my experience that every slug gun likes a different type of ammo...

will hunt for food....

My issue with the light fields was they did not group well at 100 yds...I tried the 2 3/4 and 3 inch slugs.....the other part about the Mossberg was it kicked like a mule with the 3 inch slugs.
Finally after being frustrated and reading about the pros and cons of the Mossberg, I went out and bought a Savage 220 20 gauge slug gun. This gun was sighted in ten shots out to 150 yds with the reccomended Remington accu tips.This gun is truly amazingly accurate ...No more headaches I hope....now I ready to hunt with it in Illinois

Its been my experience that every slug gun likes a different type of ammo...

Re: Mossberg 695 slug choices

Mossberg slug barrels have a 1-34? or 36? twist. Supposedly those fast slugs, like hornady sst at 2000fps, might not do well, but I killed my doe with them last year, will sight them in again next week, but I currently have the hornady sst and winchester BRI? I think that I bought just for some target practice
