Does your slug gun have a rifled barrel or smooth bore? In rifled barrels sabots are recommended, smooth bores usually shoot foster style slugs.lighthouse said:I going to be using my slug gun for the first time in 15 years. What kind of 12 gauge slugs do you recommend? I don't want to buy tons of different slugs before deciding on a good one. My old arm may not take the kick!

My 20 gauge not as much but havent had a chance to work on that one yet.
Do yourself a favor and get/borrow a lead sled.
do your test shooting from it. get it dialed in once you find your slug. Then abuse your shoulder. Not before. [/quote
This is a prime example of how identical guns shoot different slugs well. labs has a 500 that shoot sst's well and I shoot a group the size of a piece of notebook paper. I did find Remington copper solids shoot very well.
if you don't mind cleaning the lead out of the grooves in your barrel.The Great Orator said:Have to bite the bullet and buy a couple of different brands. Truth be told, my 20 ga. mossberg with a rifled barrel actually shoots the Brenneke K.O. slugs, (designed for smooth barrels, but you can use them in rifled barrels too) pretty well and they're only $5
