    new slug experiment

    Got to try the newest toy today. Bought a barrel on GB for the 870. Barrel is a 20" turkey barrel with Rem chokes. I wanted this to do two things, kill turkeys and serve as a slug barrel. I have a fully rifled barrel on another 870 that shoots well, but wanted to play with a smoothe bore and have a rifled choke option. I am still waiting for the rifled choke to come in but couldn't wait any longer to play. I used a skeet choke for this session and it seems to be doing well so far. Loaded up some Lee 1oz with 700x and at 40yd offhand got this target. The furthest to the right was 1, furthest left was #2 then 3,4,5, from right to left center 3. Was able to find one slug in the dirt. Seems to hold together well. Was surprised to find the fiber wad still attached to the base.

    Can't wait to try at 75yd to see if it holds together, but its getting hot already and the wind is blowing at 20mph.

    Vince.
