Slugs are us

the hammer head slugs, any one use them for deer hunting with a 20ga shot gun with a rifles barrel?

What were the results? good penatration and mushrooning?

A slug doesn't need to MUSHROOM. A 350 grain slug isn't going to have any PENETRATION issues either.
$15 per 20 is kind of pricey. Take a bunch of money working up the load.

And $3.00 each for store bought slugs isn't?

Consider that 62-caliber shotgun slug to be "Pre-Expanded"
