    Try Winchester Blind Side!
    I switched to it when it came out, and have been knocking geese down with it easily, with clean kills and little crippling.

    . Give them a try in your smoothbore barrel with an improved choke, modified if you do not have the improved. Just give it a shot and see what it does, you may be pleasantly surprised.[/QUOTE]
    Thats exactly the setup I missed 2 deer with last fall.
    I was trying them yesterday in the new gun w the rifled barrel cause they were the only slugs I had to try the gun out with.

    I was actually getting a bit of a doughnut pattern, was really weird, no matter the choke.
    They shoot lights out in all three of our shotguns and that's all that matters to us. We will not be using cheapies when it comes to waterfowl any more

    I have heard similar things from others, but they blow out the pattern in my 870.

    This thread is enough proof that every gun is different. Buy every single brand you can afford, Clean your barrel after a few shots, Take your time and line it up right.


    Sabots are expensive when ya start lining up, Do it right the first time it's actually pretty cheap when you start hunting with them, If you can hit where your aiming, Everytime.

    That stuff's too expensive for this guy!

    I tend to shoot 4-5 flats in a waterfowl season, and have had great luck the last 5 years with the SCORE ammo. Throw a Patternmaster Long Range in there, shoot whatever's cheapest and have at 'er.

    Sorry for the thread derail.

    That’s the ticket.

    I’ll add one thing. Wait at least five minutes between shots.. This is a must whenever a sabot is in play unless you are shooting serious sub zero temps.

    Slug barrels are thin and heat up quickly. Pull a bore snake through every three shots.
