Federal Barnes Expanders at 1900 fps out of a fully rifled Hastings. It will shoot under 2" groups at 100 yds on sandbags 9 times out of 10. The bad news is, if I miss, it ain't the guns fault!

Whatever is cheapest. Federal, remington & winchester rifled slugs all seem to shoot about the same out of my gun with a bird barrel.

I also have an 870. First year they made them, 51 I think. Last year I bought 5 different brands of slugs and tried the all at the range. I was surprised that there was a difference in them. Not a lot but enough to make me not want to buy them. I found for my gun Winchester super X rifled slugs were the most accurate. 12 GA. 2 3/4" 1 oz. Foster Slug. 1700 FPS hi-velocity. You can't use these with a rifled barrel though. Mine is smooth. Good luck. Kid

I bought a Browning bolt action rifled barrel 12 gauge the last year they made them and love the gun. I shoot remington copper solids out of it and get excellent results over 100 yards.

I'm using Winchester power points slugs and it works great for my A5 smooth bore. Yes, the power points are regular foster slug but they put a beating on any deer.

love to hunt

Finspat,

I would tell you kin to clean the gun barrel especially around the chamber.

Though it may look clean there is probably a good build up of plastic around the chamber.

I have seen it more then once.

Winchester supreme partition gold, incredibly accurate and pattern real well. The only drawback is the 12.99/box price tag.

      Walleye numbers are strong, unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack

      I got this box from a friend this winter. Very well made and thought out design! Runs on a standard 12v flasher battery. Thought some of you may be interested in one! Check them out at www.facebook.com/Js12vpowerboxes/ Cliff

      Bumping this one up as a reminder - end of the month is not far away!!!  March 1st - you need a 2018 license.

      nickeleye, Thanks for the report! Lookers but no biters seems to be the pattern the past couple of weeks. Common for this time of the winter on Vermilion! Cliff
