Defining Performance

You need to define performance under your hunting conditons. On the one hand, you list 6" at 100yds. On the other, you indicate want to kill a deer at the ranges you will encounter. In actually use, I'm going to say that most or all of you shots will be under 100yds. ....

Refering to my Mid-West ranges, I have used these slugs with very good performance. The farthest deer I have taken, was at about 80yds and most have been in the 60 or less. These slugs are really dropping at the ranges you are indicating. ....
I don't think I've ever seen a smoothbore gun that put 5 shots in 6" at 100 yards.
Can't say I have either but have never had the urge to try. I range in at 50yds. with very good performance. ...

Be Safe !!!
'Fundamental truths' are easy to recognize because they are verified daily through simple observation and thus, require no testing.
