H&R slug hunter. I think there is one for sale in the HPA classifieds right now.

The H&R single shot with bull barrel is great. Heavy but shoots great to 150+ yds. I use Remington solid coopers in 3 inch.

Re: ATTN slug gun hunters

Not sure what your budget is, but I bought a Savage 220F bolt action last year and the gun is hands down the most accurate slug gun I've ever shot. Off a bench rest, I was able to keep all my 3-shot groups under 1" @ 50 yds, and I'm not the best shooter in the world.

I think I paid 400 or so for the gun, plus another 130 for a 2-7 Nikon Prostaff scope. The gun is pleasant to shoot since it's a 20 ga and has a nice recoil pad. Kicks nothing close to a 12 ga shooting the old pumpkin [censored].

The gun will take 2 & 3/4 or 3 " shells, but I started with the Hornaday SST's in 2 & 3/4 and haven't switched. They seem to shoot well with this gun.

So I would keep this gun in mind. Of course there are many other proven slug guns-mainly pumps and single shots that can be had for a little less money. But if you want the most accuarate gun, give this one a look...Good luck with your search

Re: ATTN slug gun hunters

An H&R single shot would be your cheapest.

Re: ATTN slug gun hunters

I use a Mossberg 500 along with two of the other guys I hunt with. I have no complaints about it and have took a few deer with it throughout the past few years. I shoot 2 3/4" Winchester Super X sabot slugs.

Sitting here wating on a deer wishing on a star i will always be true to my heart

I have a 870 12 gauge,cantilever rifled barrel that shoots Federal premium Barnes expanders very well. If I was looking to buy I would get the savage 220 .
