I got some mini slugs from the gun show this weekend.
Any body tried them?
They are only about 1 1/4 " long and have a lead slug in them.
Just dont want them to get jammed in the barrel. :(

I did get a handful of the 12ga mini shotshells, didn't really want to shoot them, they were just sooo cute!!! But I did. Wasn't sure if they would feed through a pump, so I popped 'em off in a double. Light, but they wroked just fine. I think they were made in Mexico, but I'm not sure.

There are definately some compatability issues:

BTW, yes, it's made in Mexico by Aguila.

Wow! Thanks Perpster for that info.
I have an 870 pump and I was able to put 10 of these little guys in the mag tube, but I havent fired them yet.
Saturday I hope...
I will take my 870 and a buddy will bring his 500 so we can see which one cycles them better.

You're welcome. Be sure to post a range report on both guns.

Happy Shooting.

They only say they'll work in the Winchester 1300 - and even with that model you have to be crisp with your action. They can fall down into the action & get caught there. I bought some when I had a 1300, & now I use them in my SxS (no potential problems there except differing POI's with slugs).

So I did go shooting this weekend. :D Better and cheaper than therapy...:rolleyes:
These little guys were a hoot! No recoil with my 870 and the knoxx spec ops stock.
They do NOT cycle well. One at a time is the way to go, or an over/under would be best. They do eject OK, but the next shot out of the tube usually gets jammed.
Still, they were fun and make big holes in stuff.
Maybe the first shot in a HD gun?
