Question by J.B.H. Uploaded on November 14, 2012
Try different slugs and choke combinations, one type of slug may hit 3 feet off target and another dead on. Other than that if you have adjustable sights it shouldn't be much of a problem to settle on a slug type and sight it in. Just remember foster (rifled) slugs for a smooth-bore barrel and sabot slugs for a rifled barrel. Good luck!
Can't improve on anything said above.
Pretty much the same as sighting a rifle. Try different ammo for the best match to your gun. Zero at 50 yards rather than 100 yards. Adjust your sights to the center of a three shot group.
Jerking the trigger and flinching are common problems with slugs so have someone else load your chamber while you are testing loads; occassionally leaving the chamber empty. You will see if you are flinching and be able to concentrate on squeezing the trigger. Best of luck!
Thanks Hoski! Can't improve on what you said either!
