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.

    • Well yeah but can you name a vehicle built for off road including any domestic pickup truck that doesn't have issues with rust. Fenders, rockers, frames etc. If you play in the mud and salt you need to maintain them. UTVs are no different. Ask yourself why Polaris would put the air filter canister intake in the rear wheel well so it is sucking in the air from the dustiest area they could possibly draw it from resulting in a 4k bill when the motor grenades.    Jeeps are fun, used ones can be had at a reasonable price but by their nature you need to be careful when you purchase because if the previous owner drove them the way they were marketed then they may have some issues.   But the aftermarket has an amazing amount of mods,upgrades and accessories to make your Jeep into anything you want and because the generally go 10 years between major design changes there are a large number of parts available if you need them.     
    • Anyfish it's still points and way better than a zero for points! Congrats on the fine eating bird.
    • Pick up a Jake morning.  Not going help the team score, if at all.  But it sure will taste good.
    • It's been very quiet in the woods the past few days.  Some gobbling this morning.
    • Nice! Way to go! Hope I'm able to get out and enjoy hunting when I'm that age.
    • Well, one of the advantages to owning a Jeep is there are always plenty of Jeep owners out there looking for parts, so if you get ahold of one with a bad frame, you could always part it out and sell the parts to another Jeep owner who believes they have a good frame....      
    • I am saying if you go mudding or off-roading you will plug any of the drain holes they could put in there anyway. Not much different from the weep holes they put in the rear fenderwells and rockers of trucks.  I suppose it may have benefit to those who stay on pavement.
    • They put holes in the sides of the frame, so salt and mud could get in, but no holes in the bottom so they could drain, so not sure if that was planned, or just p*ss poor engineering.  They probably didn't really care as long as they outlasted the warranty period.        
    • Drain holes just end up getting plugged with mud and debris anyway.
