    In and out no paperwork or ID check, plenty of ammo on the shelves saw 5 or 6 boxes of Remington 22lr 225 count also..plenty of slugs left
  2. Firearms in the News
    Folks, I apologize in advance for my ignorance......Cleaning the basement! I bought an 870 12 Gauge short barreled turkey gun for my son 2 or 3 years ago....He never used it and we want to sell. It is essentially new in the box....not that that matters I guess, but I was wondering if I must...
  3. Ammunition and Reloading
    Does anyone do it? I'm not sure if my PW 900 will do slugs, May with some modifications. I'll be looking at my lyman's when I get home later tonight but if anyone can share their experiences it would be appreciated.
  4. Shotguns
    Since i bought my Benellis, i only had the chance to shoot slugs at an indoor range. Quite nice and fun, however i really want to shoot / practice shooting other types of ammunition like buckshot, birdshot, etc... Which ranges in the near NYC area or LI allow for other types of shotgun ammo...
  5. Ammunition and Reloading
    i just ordered a box myself. RIO Royal Star 12 ga. Slug- RSL12- 250 Round Case shipping was $30 bucks ups ground.. i think its a decent price for slugs, ive never shot these before, but its worth a try at that price.

    Are they useless? I shot 10 this weekend upstate, and they were all at least 12 inches off from where I was aiming. Distance to target was around 40 yards.
  7. Ammunition and Reloading
    I was just looking through the dicks sporting goods flyer, and saw they have 5 round boxes of federal truball rifled slugs for 2.98 per box, with a 2 dollar mail in rebate. Just thought I would share. I was at dick's in market place and they had a pretty good supply

    So i have a short barrel mossberg... maybe 18a inches i measured when i got it and it was 1/2in over legal.. Question is simple... is the short barrel going to severely limit my acc. W/ slugs? I was planning on getting a rifled canti. But i dont see it happening.. ill probably just test it...
  9. Shotguns
    With the price of ammo being what it is, I am trying too find a way to cut down the cost of shooting my slug gun. I mentioned in another thread about sighintg in using premium ammo. this got very expensive. Has anyone grouped well using foster type slugs from their rifled barrell slug...
  10. Ammunition and Reloading
    I have been doing searches but can't come up with any previous topics here. I am looking for info on loading 12 ga sabot slugs. I currently shoot the Federal Premium Tipped Barnes Expanders- 3". I am interested in any info to hand load a similiar slug. Is anyone in here into slug reloading?
  11. Shotguns
    So this past weekend I tried out a number of rifled slugs in my Remington 870 tactical express smooth bore 18" barrel. From this inexpensive setup, I was able to shoot Remington Sluggers right on top of each other in a tight group (with the assistance of a gun vise) from 100 yds away. Other slug...
  12. Hunting, Fishing and Trapping
    This will be my first year hunting, so I bought various brands (5-round boxes) of rifled slugs to find out which would work best with my 870. Here is a summary of what I found while sighting in my 870 tactical express on a 100 yd target with the aid of a gun vise... 1. Remington Sluggers - best...
  13. Shotguns
    i know your only supposed to use riffled slugs in a sb bbl and only sabots in a rb bbl but when it comes to chokes i know that you shouldent use mod or full. but wich is better cyl bore or imp cyl in terms of accuracy/whats better for the gun
  14. Shotguns
    What slugs do you guys like for smooth bore shotguns for deer hunting? More particularly a smooth bore Ithaca 16 gauge. The past couple years I used an Ithaca rifled 12 gauge with lightfeilds but this year I am going to use the 16, so I am curious what slugs you guys recommend for a smooth...

  16. Ammunition and Reloading
    Does anyone have experience with both of these for comparisons sake? I'm going to try both of them, but I'd like to hear from someone who's shot and hunted with 'em.
  17. Ammunition and Reloading
    Anyone know anything about the Federal Premium Tactical Slugs and Buckshot? I can't seem to find much info on it or even if it is still made. I have seen it for sale online in a few places but can't find it even on federals own website. I'm interested because I'm currently using federal...
  18. Shotguns
    My question is.. can I shoot Sabot Slugs out of a Rifled Barrel???? As of now All i have been shooting out of it was the Power-Shock Ball rifled Slugs By Federal.. If I can use Sabot too then i wouldnt be so limited to types of ammo... Wish i could find a Turkey barrel :-\
