i shoot 3" copper solids. my gun loves them and deer dont. i tried the accutips this year and they shot great, but i wasnt impressed with the results on game. they reminded me of the hornadys. junk! no expansion.
You have to experiment , certain shotguns shoot better with some sabots than others , yes it makes a big difference between the different brands .
this is VERY true, but you gotta look at whats effective too. i know the Hornadys shoot great, tight patterns, but i wouldnt put one through my gun if somebody gave it to me. they dont kill deer, plain and simple.
