    Let me try again, since the first link didn't take: This is a pretty interesting "rant" Maybe most of you have already read this. I came across it, and though a bit out of date, it got me thinking about the possibilities. Does his assertion have merit...
  2. Shotguns
    I was wondering if anyone has installed a timney trigger on an 870 and noticed any difference? I have an 870 slug gun that shoots very good with lightfield slugs at 100 yds but I think with a better trigger I can get some improvement. It's not big $ but I like to do some research before I act...

    Looking for a new long distance gun.Been hearing good things about this single shot H&R. Wondering if anyone has on and can comment ? Also thinking about getting into a 20ga instead of the 12 because of less recoil for better accuracy and since there about the same size as a muzzle loader bullet...

    Ok, can anyone tell me the practical difference in quality or function/accuracy between a Remington 870 20ga with cantilevered rifled slug barrel and a Mossberg 500 20ga with cantilevered rifled slug barrel? Expected max shooting distance of 100yds. The Mossberg is about $100 cheaper than the...

  11. Long Range Precision Shooting
    I brought a friend of mine out to sight in his new slug gun for hunting season and ran into a big problem, even with the elevation set to bring the crosshair as low as possible the gun is still firing about 3 feet high at 50 yards. Has anyone else experienced the same kind of problem? It doesn't...

    I finally got a chance too shoot my Rem 870 slug gun (RB, open sights). I tried shooting a few different types of "premium slugs" in 3" ; rem, copper solids, federal barnes expanders, and some winchester sabot slugs( bri). The gun shoots around corners! At 50 yds, i could not hit a 3'x2' sheet...

    Anyone here own an H&R Ultra Slug Hunter? I gave up shotgun hunting for deer years ago and switched to a muzzleloader for the challenge of only getting one shot, but my buddy showed me his single shot H&R today and I fell in love with it. I guess it's a real tack driver. Wondering if any of...

    I'm thinking of buying a Savage 220 slug gun for this deer season. I sighted in a friend's last year, it shot well, 2 1/2" @ 100 ds. But he complained of failures to eject, wth them hanging up in the ejection port. Anyone out there have experience with it positive or negative?

    So I took my new/used rifled barreled slug gun out to the range this weekend and fired about 6 rounds out of it with a few different sabot brands. When i got home to clean it I was surprised at how dirty the barrel was ( this is a bolt action 12ga ) Asisde from the usual black grime there were...
