Just wondering if Brenneke 3" rifled slugs are a good choice in a slug round?

I'd stay away from 3" loads unless it was a grizzly I was aiming for. Try www.gunspot.com for some insights into Brenneke slugs. You'll have to search, but I remember reading positive comments.

A smoothbore,unchoked 870 here puts the 2 3/4" Brenneke into 2 1/2" at 50 yards with a peep sight. Effect on deer is awesome. I doubt they'll drop any faster with the 3 inch.

Cape buff have fallen to the brenneke. I have tested on Iron sink (Tougher than most game) the rott outperformed all the other major brands 3" slugs, plus rott is heaviest at 600 grains, these things kick ass. If you want max penetration this german bad boy is the one. I have well over 100 rounds of this slug and its a real "kick" to shoot them rapid fire in benelli. Hey, I only do this when I hear the voices!

LAPD should of had a some in the North Hollywood shootout, but them agin this would have interfered with the new kinder and gentler training the cops do with shotguns these days.

Bennett we still havent partied.

I'll just second the other good things being said about the Brenneke slugs. IMHO the 3" 600g Rothweil is one of the best around. My smooth bore 870 prefers them to all the others, and they are fairly cheap (for Fairbanks). At close to medium ranges, they group just as well through my rifled barrel as sabots do.

I always carry two in the magazine when I am out in the bush. Damn fine slug.

Safe shooting,
TJ
