    Bought new TC prohunter 20 gauge slug gun, I shot at rane remington 20 gauge accutips. They shot sub 2" groups at 100yard consistantly, ANYONE have experience with these slugs? Did they perform for you in field?

    You def. flinched . They shoot great, dumps a lot of energy in deer. Very soft so you dont always get pass-through. Last 5 deer were shot (right behind shoulder) between 70 & 125 yards and recovered 4 out of 5 slugs. But they were all DRT.

    Haley has shot two deer out her H&R 20. Both times the round exited the same size it entered. One was around 50 yards and the other around 65 yards.

    Group great but had a hard time finding them last season.

    More proof that you have to pattern your gun. 20ga 2.75" Accutips grouped *relatively* poorly out of our Hastings rifled barrel.

    Good luck.

    Try using the 3" out of the 20.Here is a 5 shot group @ 50 yrds with the Savage 220. Just shooting for a group not really concerned with a bullseye. I have not hunted with the 20 yet


    Out of the 12 I shoot the 2/34" in my H&R. I was able to harvest these two with accutips
    Went 40 yards

    Went 80 yards

    Hasting Barrels twist rate is 1 in 34, kinda slow for the newer 1850-2000fps sabots. Probably why they didn't hold tight.

    The gun has a 2.75 chamber .... Youth LT-20 Rem 1100. Made a deer gun out of it for the family. We got the best groups out of the Hastings barrel with Lightfields.

    Lightfields will always shoot. From the TC I would HIGHLY suggest trying the Hornadys. MY h&r didn't like them but god does it deliver the accutips on point well past 100 yards.

    I'm sure I don't shoot good enough to find out their full potential, as long as they work good on deer that's all I'm worried about
