Just Making Sure

6 posts in this topic

So stopped by the range just to make sure the gun was all sighted in. Shooting the Hornady SST 12 ga "slugs" if you can call them that! Unbelievable! 5 shots inside 2-3 inches at 100 yards! looked like one big ragged hole. Rem 870 w/ rem rifled barrel, and bushnell tropy variable scope. If i miss one, it will not be due to inaccurate ammo! No wonder they're sold out everywhere. good hunting to all getting out this weekend, be safe have fun, and take PICS!! cool.gif

How much do the Hornady's cost? I have the same Rem. 870 with the Re. rifled barell and shoot the Winchester Sabot's thru them. At 50 yds it was dang near dead on. I did not try 100yds because I can barely see 50yds from my stand. Just wondering how much they cost? Winchester's were $10 a box.

I just saw these online last night. I do not shoot slugs but if I did those would be it! Biff, I think hornady has them for 15 something on their web site.

I have used them for 2 years out of a benelli. They are devistating. However, I never get a good blood trail with them. They are very accurate and I have busted through 2 sholders with perfect expansion. The entry and exit hole are no larger than a dime though. That didn't matter in my case because combined 3 deer didn't move more than 20 yards after the shot. They are great rounds and I think the Winchesters are exactly the same only more expensive. I bought SST's for 11.99 at Gander.

I put down a deer today using the Winchestor Sabot's and put a pretty good hole through the kill zone. Have not shot these winch at more than 50 yrds. I will try the Hornady's next year. The deer I shot was no more than 30yds away.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
