So I am not sure if any of the fellow hunters are aware but Lightfield had discontinued making their slugs. so I am getting down to my last few boxes. what do you fella hunters suggest I switch too?

the broom i use is a 20 gauge h&r slug hunter.  i hate to retire it and just use the cva scout 450

Each one of us here today will at one time in our lives look upon a loved one who is in need and ask the same question: We are willing to help, Lord, but what, if anything, is needed? For it is true we can seldom help those closest to us. Either we don't know what part of ourselves to give or, more often than not, the part we have to give is not wanted. And so it is those we live with and should know who elude us. But we can still love them - we can love completely without complete understanding.

Lead sleds and lined paper targets.  You can usually zero it in with a few shoots.  After that, misses are usually operator errors.   Grin Grin Grin

Kerry (DP) used to say every gun was made with so many misses built in from the factory. You never knew what order they would come out in. I must have terrible luck buying ones with more misses in then others

ok the ones I use have the fins and are great deer stoppers. I have about 10 boxes due too the fact that I hunt mostly 2 countys , Carroll and Worcester and both are rifle  so. I was told the ones I use were so hard to get was because law enforcement used them and they always had their orders fill first..... thinking back they may be sabot slugs and that's the reason I bought a rifled ,ported ,scope mount barrell\ for my shotgun.

I hunt off Turkey Foot road. Property isnt large but it is the top of a ridge where one side has a stream on the bottom and the other has some dense pines.  So they travel back and forth.

But def has some good genes in the area and even caught a pair of coyotes on camera.
