  1. Firearms General Discussion
    Well it's certainly something: The slug round, while not the most accurate, certainly cuts through steel like it's butter... The range I'm shooting the Benelli M1 S90. Often I hear of the .50 cal as the king of engine-destroying rounds. I'm thinking the slug might just rival it....

    A good friend of mine and his dad go elk hunting in grizzly bear country and have some heavy artillery for animals that are higher up the food chain than you and i. The father uses a .340 Weatherby for elk and bear along with a .460 Weatherby Magnum as back-up. The MkV .460 REALLY packs a punch...

    I'm looking at getting a new shotgun and I'd like to have something with somewhat of a tight pattern. I also want to be able to use slugs if the need arises. Would using slugs in an improved or modified choke be damaging to the barrel?

    For general use of a shotgun - say less then 50 yards, which would you prefer buckshot or slug? Of course a lot of it will depend on what kind of choke you are using. My mossberg 590 is almost useless at 35 yards. Winchester 00 buckshot, only one pellet hit the target. But then again, the...
