An accurate one.
The most accurate seem to be bolt/single action slug guns that are built to shoot sabots. Browning A-bolt 12ga slug gun and h&r ultra slug single are very good. I own the a-bolt, it is the cats meow.
I'm quite sure you're going to get opinions representing lots of manufacturers.
For my 2 cents, I wouldn't trade my Remington 1100 W/riffled barrel.
I don't own one but have heard nothing but rave reviews on the H&R Ultra Slug Single shot Jay mentioned. I have heard the 20ga version is far more accurate out at further distances and those that have them that I have talked to like the 3" slugs. Whats even better is they are less than $200.
if you dont want to buy a specalized slug gun I like my 870 with a rifled barrel
People are raving about the Savage bolt action slug guns.
Personally, I wouldnt trade my Mossberg 835 12 gauge with a rifled barrel and a scope for anything. I never hesitate to take a shot at 125+ yards with it.
I like the Ithaca Deerslayer, which is the Model 37 pump action with a 20-inch barrel. This is strictly a short-range proposition.
if you already own a pump or semiauto shotgun id recoment buying a rifled barrel for it. that being said for the most part your going to hear a lot of personal opinions. If you dont own one already I'd sugjest buying any semi auto you'd like that makes a rifled barrel. Im fond of the 11-87 as its relitively inexpensive. the semi auto will absorb some of the recoil that the pump gun wont. i shoot a mossberg 500 with a rifled barrel with a scope. it kills deer with the right slug picked out past the 100 yard mark. but its a little rough on the shoulder,
I have a now discontinued Marlin bolt gun that I wouldn't trade for anything.
Dcast, if you don't own one, how can you offer an informed opinion?
Or is it just like your politics...you just pick a side and repeat the rhetoric?
Yeah that was me who dinged ya.
Reading all this I haven't a clue what shotgun you should choose. I am just so thankful that where I am I can shoot mammals with rifles and can use the shotguns on birds. My condolences, and good luck with that slug gun.
doughball, same question to you...if you don't own one...
Hoskalinski, so sorry for your sad and bitter existence. At least your Remington is working for you. Don't do anything rash in your bitter despondency.
870 cativeller barrel, or short bird barrel with rifled choke
ment smooth bore* my mistake
I paid $50 for my smoothbore 18" Ithaca Deerslayer. I've put alot of meat in the freezer with that gun and under $5 a box slugs.
Mine because I know how and when to use it. Cheers.
Remington 1187 cantilevered 20 gauge rifled barrel. Leupold Ultimate slam scope. Short light shoots 1.5 inch groups at 100yds
20 gauge 3 1/2 inch slugs but smooth bored barrell. the 3 1/2 can take down a buffalo at 250 yards she will clean a buck right off his feet and clean your shoulder out to if ya aint careful
