Doesn't your barrel have an adjustable sight? You should be able to bring it down by adjusting the rear sight. Another option would be to buy a B-Square and a scope or red dot site for your gun. That would also allow you to get it sighted in.

If that barrel does not have ajustable sights, I would bring it back and get one that does (or get the cantilever to use with a sighting device). As far as changing slugs, it can make a big difference. In my gun, the Hornady SST's (which I will use this year) hit a good foot higher than the Winch. PG's or Remmington Core Locks. That is why it is important to select one type of slug, sight your gun in, and then hunt with the same. I do think your goal should be to have the gun hit where you aim it. One of my hunting partners gets great groups with your gun and the Federal Barnes sabots with a red dot.

Good luck - time is running out.

Everybody's gun shoots a little differently for different ammo. There seems to be one brand that fits each gun the best. The Remington CoreLokt Ultras are the ones for me, they shoot awesome groups at 100 yrds. At 385 gr they're quite a bit bigger than the 300 gr Hornadys and shoot only around 100 fps slower. They're also hollow points where the Hornady's aren't. They are kinda spendy though at around $15, had to spend $30 the other day just to sight the thing in. Kinda late to start experimenting though in my opinion unless you're in Zone 3/4 second season that is.

Just got back from the farm and my 835 Ulti-Mag Slug Barrel is hitting about 8 inches high at 50 yards and the rear sight is all the way down. I hate to have to adjust my aim for the sight but I guess for this year I will have to do that. Next year will either mount a scope on it or take it to a gun smith and have him do some work on it. Hope that you all have a very SAFE and successful hunt. We leave to the great nort' tomorrow morning. Have a good one and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

I don't know why everyone says sighting in now is too late, if you sight in last weekend or in march or today it only takes a few hours and its better to do it the day before than not at all.

I had the same problem with my slug barrel last year and this year when I went to sight it in. I was shooting Brenekke rotweiler's and they were consistently low and left. I had my back sight adjusted all the way to bring it up and they were still low. I was about ready to bring it to a gun smith and see if the sight was broke but decided to try a different brand. I bought some Remington slugger's and they shoot dead on and the rear sight is back in the middle of its travel range. It suprised the heck out of me that different brands shoot that much different.

But for next year I think I am going to save up and but a red dot for my gun.
