Re: Hastings slug barrel for 870 Remington
I have a Hastings Paradox on my 870 and it shoots GREAT. I do shoot Remington Copper Solids, as they USED to say the right coded slugs (post 1999 slugs) were fine. It looks as though another company bought Hastings and now says NO Remington slugs are ok.
So far, no problems.
I just shot it recently. Shot one shot, pin-wheeled the 3" dot at 100 yards, took the barrel off to shoot the smooth barrel, then put the Hastings back on and shot again. Center to center, to two shots measured 7/8". I have a group saved from it where it printed a perfect overlapping cloverleaf with 3 shots at 100 yards.
