Decidion Posted March 4, 2009 Share Posted March 4, 2009 I am hoping some folks here can educate me as far as the viability of hunting large game (say deer and maybe even as large as elk or moose) using slugs in an unrifled 12 gauge barrel. It would seem to me that it is more a matter of getting close enough for accuracy than actual stopping power, is that correct? Whats the best type of slug round for an unrifled barrel? I think I read somewhere they make rifled slugs? I know the old adage, use the right tool for the job, but if you were forced to only pick one type of weapon for the vast majority of hunting, would you choose a 12 gauge? Sorry for all the questions here, I'm just trying to learn whats out there and to make good choices. Jeff Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
