Old timers and I do mean old timers used to do this, instant deer slug that carries 100 yards or so and is sorta accurate. I once shot a whole box out of a single shot at a metal target 120 yards out, hit the metal sign every time to show a bunch of young know it alls. I used a model 1200 winchester 30 in barrel full choke.
In 1963 i saw a guy cut a shell and shoot up to geese flying over, he hit one and I watched it slowly circle down, dinner was here
Wasnt all these new shells, new slugs etc, folks had to make do.
