TRU BALL SLUGS ANY GOOD?????????????????????

6 posts in this topic

I will be shooting a mossberg 500 20 guage this year instead of my 270 WSM not heading north this year. Just wondering if they group good and please mention what gun you shot them out of. Thanks

As has been said in many forums in the past, buy a box and go out and shoot some. Every gun will shoot different.

My niece earned the nickname Annie Oakley because she took 2 deer running broadside one year. Both times she was shooting the Tru-Ball slugs out of a 20 ga Mossberg.

First deer was at 78 yards running full tilt, one shot. The second came the day after at 30 yards, one shot is all she needed.

I already know the obvious I was just asking a general question I believe. You would have a point if I asked how these slugs tend to group at given yardages, but I dont think I did specifically ask that did I?

Hi GoldTip,

I don't believe anyone was trying to rip on your post or offend you bud. But from what I’ve notice is that, Slugs guns are very picky on what slug they like. I've seen the exact same setup, like 2 totally different slugs. My uncle's 870 smoothbore likes Federal Truball's, while my buddies 870 likes Remington 3”sluggers.

Truball’s do group very well. My uncle gets 2”-3” groups at 50ydrs, Remi 870 smoothbore 28”bird barrel with IC choke. When I used to shoot my Moss 500 Smooth Slug Barrel with C bore. It liked Brenneke KO’s the best, I got 2”groups at 50ydrs and they dropped every deer I shot in their tracks. You might wanna give them a try also, plus they are even a little cheaper too.

Hope this helps and good luck this season

Whats with this site being so political all the dang time????????????????????????????

Wasn't trying to bust your hump GT. Just offering some real life experience with the same combo that you asked for. Nothing wrong with a little advice. Your initial post questioned how they group. I gave the yardages to reflect their accuracy at a distance.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
    • IDK, people pick apart the Hanzal/White trade as a mistake, but I don't. I think it was totally worth the shot to make a solid push. Going in everyone who did any analysis knew the first round was going to be full of 2nd round talent so losing a 1st rounder this year wasn't giving up much. I also don't think Fletch should make a trade for the sake of making a trade either. That is a desperation move and not one fueled by focusing on getting the team better. I would be shocked if someone like Scandella isn't moved in order to make room from Granlund, Nino, etc. We are really tight now with the guys we want to keep and have a few holes to fill beyond that so something has to give.
    • Garretson Food Center..... $1.69/ pound You are exactly right.... And if you vacuum seal it with some of the drippings, this winter it will taste like it was fresh off the smoker!
    • The truth comes out!
    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.
