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.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
