I love shooting Slugs, I'll give em' a try.:thumb:
Cool, let me know how they work out for you. They are for smooth bores as well... I have read several accounts of folks using them in smooth bores with equal results.I love shooting Slugs, I'll give em' a try.:thumb:
No, not at all, common misconception. The "rifling" on the slugs is just for nice tight swage fit in barrel. The stability in flight is all about the shuttlecock shape of the slug, it doesn't spin like a bullet from a rifled barrel and is not designed to do so.... is HOPEFULLY A "rifled Slug" will pick up some spiraling and therefore stability when it proceeds along its trajectory (read: It will hopefully spin like a rifle bullet)...
I don't know what a "regular" slug is. Where can I see one for sale?Rifled slugs are usually a little more than "Regular" slugs in price
What is not sound about getting the same results from a $1 slug as from a $3 slug? Yes, I understand completely that sabot slugs are designed for rifled barrels, but that does not mean that the Brenneke's I mentioned are not designed for the same rifled barrels.Yeah I just don't know where you're getting this as if, this particular "The Brenneke RIFLED slugs are indeed for use in EITHER" ... Of course they are, you can use any of them you want in that rifled slug barrel. There is no problem, it's just pointless, the reason you'd buy a rifled slug barrel is for shooting slugs, most likely sabot slugs which is why they invented sabot slugs. I'm not really talking about damage bud, of course you're not going to hurt it, it's just pointless and you're posting as if you discovered some secret or something, and you're advocating people do it. What you're doing is saving you money, I guess, sure, but you're not using your gun or the ammo for what either is designed for. No problems, I mean, do what you gotta do and go on with your bad self, but don't start posting like you figured out some secret deal and want to be the bearer of great news for people, you're not exactly providing sound advice here.
Sabot rounds are ONLY meant for rifled barrels, but there are rounds designed for rifled barrels, which are not sabots.I shoot only sabot slugs in my m535.It is a rifled barrel and is only meant for sabot rounds.
