Remington 870 smooth slug barrel
I've got an 18.5" smooth bore slug barrel for my 870, and I'm having a hard time finding rifled slugs that stay consistent with it. Remington Sluggers are doing OK so far out to 50 yards, but after that they're all over the place and I think I'd do just about as well throwing rocks at the deer. Winchesters were even worse, and I went through a couple boxes of slugs my buddy left behind when he moved, can't remember the brand name now but they had transparent casings, and I couldn't even get them on the paper they flew so wild.
For the rest of this year I think I'll stick with the sluggers and just hold myself to <50 yard shots, not that I see many deer further away than that in the brush I usually hunt, but I do have one spot in DE that could possibly present longer shots and I'd like to find a solution less expensive than a rifled barrel and scope. Does anybody have experience with 870 smooth slug barrels and have a suggestion on what worked best for you?
I so miss Clarion and hunting deer with my .270.
