View Full Version : 3" or 3 1/2"??? That is the question.

I got a good deal on a Mossberg 835 Ulti-Mag. Turkey/Deer Combo. I am curious as to what 3 1/2" slug to try first. Actually, I am also wondering what benefit 3 1/2" slugs would give me. Needless to say that finding 3 1/2" slugs is a chore in itself. Any one got any advice or experience with this? I would like to try this thing out Thanksgiving morning, so I can possibly us it on Saturday.(Opening day of shotgun!!!!!)

Lightfield makes some 3-1/2" slugs. But when you examine them, the slug is set about a 1/2" back in the case. It looks like a 3 incher with a turtle-neck pulled up over its ears

If it has a fully rifled barrel take a look at the Winchester Supreme slugs, ballistics are extreme to say the least.

Sorry I didn't make more specific, yes it is a fully rifled slug barrel at 24" in length.
