Low Recoil Rifled Slugs...Tame the ShockWave

Lest you fear lower velocity will seriously hinder the effectiveness of a one ounce rifled slug, here is a link to a successful deer hunt by Brobee 223 with a Mossberg ShockWave using Remington Low Recoil Rifled Slugs. These slugs, rated at 1200 fps, actually reached 1100 fps from the 14 inch barrel. The 590 had an XS Big Dot sight installed over the original bead to bring the slug rounds down to a 50 yard point of aim.

The complete pass-through shot came at frame 7.00

Great shot placement. Even without the heart and dbl lung hit, that slug went all the way through and kept going. A 1oz chunk o lead at 1100fps is nothing to sneeze at

Another successful deer hunt by Brobee 223, this time with Remington Low Recoil 8 pellet 00B. Again, a taller front sight and careful pre-hunt patterning set the limits of this load from the cylinder bore Mossberg Shock Wave.
