Recommended Posts

Anybody use a 20 gauge sabots for deer hunting?

I purchased a Mossberg 500 slug gun with rifled barrel and catalievered barrel with a scope, anybody have any experience with this?

I think the Mossberg 500 is a great all around weapon. There is a reason why the military uses it!

Pick up some Hornady 20ga. SST sabot slugs for it, you won't be disapointed, there in a brownish colored box.

I have the same combo with a Bushnell Banner 1.5-4.5x32, but in a 12ga, I absolutely love it. Once you sight it in, even if you switch out barrels your still be zeroed in, unless you dismount your scope. A 20ga is more then enough for deer and most North American game. Some of the hunting buds shoot 20ga’s and I’ve never seen them to have trouble dropping deer out to 100+yrds. Most of them are using Winchester Partition Gold’s, and some are using Remington Solid Coppers.

Last season I tried the Hornady SST slugs. I was very impressed with how flat shooting and accurate they were, but I wasn’t impressed with their knock down power. I’ve got a fairly long post on them a little while back. I wasn’t able to recover any slugs, but from the exit wounds, they didn’t seem to expand much. I’m actually heading to the range today to try out some Partition Gold’s. If they group just as good as the Hornady’s I’ll probably switch to them. I’ve seen the damage they can produce, plus if needed I can bumm some off the buds too =) LOL!

Not to bash Hornady, I like their products and I've been a longtime customer, just my personal experience.

BTW, Make sure your scope is made for shotguns. A 20ga still packs a kick and can ruin regular rifle scopes.

I have a remington 20 gauge that I might put a rifled barrel on. The 12 seems like over kill since I never shoot past 50-60 yds. The 20 never gets used either, so this would put it back in service. Any recomendations on the best rifled cantilever barrel for a remington?

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
