If you have one what kind of slugs did you find to shoot the best?

I have a Mossy 500 w/Cantilever Scope (24" rifled barrel). I use 3" Federal Sabots. They shoot better than the 2-1/2" ones.

allow me to add that my REMINGTON 11-87 SPS also loves them LIGHTFIELDS 2-3/4". If I ever hunt out in IOWA or Illinois I will switch to a lighter more flatter slug, of course I would have to test the different brands

While I've never shot the Lightfields, it's funny how some guns operate. Like I've said, out of my 12ga 500, between the 2-3/4" and 3" rounds, it likes the 3"ers.

Like I said, it's weird. At 100 yds, which is where I've sighted it in, the 3"ers maintain their projectory better than the 2-3/4"s. Maybe it's Federal's design. Don't get me wrong, I'd use either when hunting as they both shoot well.

Overall that Mossberg 500 is a great shotgun, I just got tired of hunting with a pump, I always wanted a semi-auto, so I treated myself to one

HAve Mossberg 695 Bolt action slug gun and it loves to throw Winchester Partition Gold. No problem with 2"-3" pattern at 100yrds. Longest shot to date was 127 paces from standing position and dropped him dead in his tracks. Had used Lightfields a few years ago and they were the best, however Lightfield changed something and they didn't pattern well after that. I don't know exactly what changed, all I know is one year the shells were now blue in color. That's when I switched to Winchester 2 3/4" 1 oz.

I would hope the 3" shot better then those 2-1/2" shells[rofl][hihi]

My 500 Mosseburg 12ga works the best with Winchester 2 3/4 1 oz slugs at 3.35 a box. It is deadly out to 90 yards.
