M2 Slug Gun...Most accurate brand/size

Recommended Posts

Hello all, Just purchased an M2 field slug gun, 12 ga and would like to get some insight on what brand and length ammo anyone uses for the best accuracy. I have a 20 ga 11-87 that I went through hundreds of dollars of ammo trying to get it to shoot and would not like to repeat the exercise with the M2. TIA

field slug gun? are we talking rifled barrell or field barrell?

 

i cant help you when talking about a rifled barrel.. but for field barrel go with an Ic or rifled choke tube with Brenneke black magics in 3 inch. or maybe federal truball's! pick something and head to the range.

Rifled barrel. Somewhere on the Benelli website I saw that they recommended the Federal Barnes/Sabot Vital shock but didn't specify 2&3/4 or 3 inch shells. TIA, Dale

give the remington accutip a shot.. literally. supposedly the most accurate sabot slug and its .58 caliber so it backs quite the punch. they arent that expensive compared to some slugs ive seen.

Went to the range today & shot 12 different saboted slug loads. Ended up with the Lightfield 3 inch HYBRED-ELITE 1 1/4 oz. (Orange box). Best three shot group, one inch CTC with these slugs. Gun is M2 12 ga. Slug gun w/Nikon 2x-7x ML/Shotgun scope. Getting more ammo to try at 150 and 200 yds. Also going to switch to Leupold 3x-9x Ultimate Slam scope with SBR reticle. Stay tuned. DH99

Shot about 15-20 Federal/Barnes 3" hollow points out of my SBE and liked what I saw, 1 1/2" at 75 yds. The tipped Federal/Barnes had more speed and energy, but grouping wasn't as consistent for me, your results may vary. Best of luck!
