We have a H&R slug gun in the shop with a factory target that has about the same group, they use Lightfeild slugs at the factory when this gun was shipped.

I've harvested many of deer using a lightfield slug back in the 90's and that's another prime cantidate for cloverleafs!

I since switched to solely pistol and revolver though (in shotgun zone).

I shot the LightFields in my Ithica deer slayer when i had it and they shot very well and recovered slugs mushroomed as they should. The gun shop where i got my gun was realy pushin these sst's so i thought i'd give them a try they sure are accurate. Hopefully tuesday i'll see how they perform on deer Very Happy

Yeah.....since you already have something that works well, just wait till after season, try the different slugs out there, and dial that bad boy in Very Happy

I just got on Hornady's web site for ballistics on the 300gr sst there pretty impressive.

muz vel 2000fps / 2644 fp- lbs
50yd vel 1816fps / 2196 fp- lbs
100yd vel 1641fps / 1793 fp- lbs
150yd vel 1482fps / 1463 fp-lbs
200yd vel 1341fps / 1198 fp-lbs

50yds +2.4 100yds +2.7 150yds 0 200yds -6.7

These modern day sabots are impressive to say the least and most of the slug manufactures offer good ones now if we can just get them to lower the price. $2.30 a shot gets pretty pricey.

Yep sales in our shop has declined drasticaly the last year, the Super Wal-Mart eats alot of our Ammo sales, we cant buy semi loads like they can, so our prices will never compete. Sad
