bolt action 695 slugger anyone have one

Recommended Posts

I own a mossber 695 slugster but my bolt is broken I only used it once on the range the whole bolt is not broken only the ejector pins at the end i contacted mossberg but they would like to have my whole rifle. But i wont be able to get it back before rifle deer season starts. i did write back and asked if i could buy a bolt no questions asked. Questions::
What kind of weapons do you use?
Do any of you drive or stalk deer versus sitting in a fixed position or stand.
I would like tips i dont have a stand and am going to walk around the woods maybe get lucky

Yes I have one and it is the only gun I will use for slug hunting. It is incredibly accurate compared to a slug barrel on a normal shotgun. Use the 385 grain sabot slugs made by Winchester, they are awesome. Too bad to hear you are having problems with yours, hope you get it repaired before season opens.

As far as how to hunt it depends on the terrain that you are hunting. I hunt ravines, so I look for an area where a couple of them come together and then walk around looking for signs of deer. If you find a well traveled trail, look for a spot 25-30 yards off of it with good cover. Keep in mind you want to do this a week or so before the season starts, you don't want to be tromping around looking for a spot on opening morning! Then get out there an hour or so before the sun comes up on opener and and wait for old mossy antlers to wander by.

There are many, many other factors to consider and you may be hunting in other conditions so my advice may not be of any use to you, but thats my $.02...

They will more than likely need your
entire gun to fit the bolt to your gun.
This is the normal procedure when dealing
with bolt-actioned firearms, so they aren't
messing with you.

    • In October 2017, Saudi Arabia presented an ambitious project to construct a smart and environmentally safe city called Neom on the Red Sea coast. The project creators expect the city to cover its energy needs with renewable sources entirely, and that the transportation system, and all the essential services, be 100% sustainable. The mega-project — estimated at $500bn — currently exists on paper only, but it stands as a strong indication of the general focus on environmental compatibility and energy efficiency in the segment. This is a part of an article https://tranio.com/articles/building-green-trendy-and-economical/   What do you think about such projects? Is it worth investments in 21 century? Would you build such house?  
    • tracked down some quick numbers; supposedly the heater draw at 7 amps, and that would be the main appliance to be ran at night +-1.5 hour total run time during a 8 hour sleep period; i should have plenty of power on the battery!
       
    • This got me curious, so I checked my profile and sure enough, I'm coming up on 10 years myself on 12/30.  However, over those 10 years I've posted WAY less topless selfies than Leech has!
    • ikr, Duff started some noise a while back but never happened? 😒
    • awesome thanks guys; found out my battery has 88 amp hours; I'll look into my heater, and radio, not sure what the LED lights are, i'll try to look there too;   how long do your guys usually last before in need of a genny?
    • You might be right.  The only common denominator between all of the kickers that have encountered major issues while with the Vikings is Priefer.  He has built the Special Teams unit into a Special Needs unit.  How they can under preform every year and break down at the most critical times and it not come back on Priefer is really mind boggling.  
    • Congrats whippersnapper.   When are you going to get your wings and throw a get together?👈👈☝️👍😁❤😁
    • Some radio's can be really power hungry. I'd just use a simple bluetooth speaker or some sort of standalone boom box of sorts (for example my makita radio can run for around 50 hours on a single battery). If your lights are not already switch them over to LED. Both of these are easily done to reduce current draw. If you search amazon you can also buy and install PWM led dimmers on all your lights, only turn them up as bright as needed. The great thing about PWM is it reduces your current draw unlike resistor based dimmers of past. Lastly I would take an actual reading at the battery and right where its wired (your results should be very close) when your alarm goes off. You may have a bad Co/lp alarm or the following issues that increase resistance to your alarm in turn dropping the voltage it sees: poor connections, too small of gauge wiring, excessive wire length.
    • There's nothing amusing, or even confusing as to why it happens.  It would be more confusing if outdoorsmen didn't overharvest.  Look no further than Harden's Tragedy of the Commons.       There's a near perfect correlation with the amount of free public resources and the inferior quality of those resources.  This is why reservations are largely wilderness ghettos.  It's why Red Lake collapsed.  The student loan bubble.  This is also why urban ghettos are looted every time there is a riot.  Subsidized housing, drinking water, livestock farming etc.     When people aren't responsible for the effects their actions have on the system they're impacting, those systems will fail.  But hey, keep helping the state buy up all the land and monopolize the lakes.  Maybe someday enough of that insanity will yield a different result.  
    • First off, you need to figure out you amp loading.... how many amps does your furnace take, lights, radio etc. and how long do they run. That should give you your amp hr rating. Then match your battery requirement up with the right amount of amp hours.  Not all batteries are created equal based on size. For example, a group 27 can range from 60-100 amp hrs.    Here is a good site for calculating battery requirements https://www.batterystuff.com/kb/tools/calculator-sizing-a-battery-to-a-load.html
