shoots off 6" at 100' with slugs

Recommended Posts

Shooting Slugs:

My sons I-12 shoots consistently 6” to the left at 100’. I have had it to the gunsmith and he checked the barrel and it is straight. If he compensates by aligning the bead to the right of the site grove he can hit well with it.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Jeff

It's a shotgun.

The beads aren't designed to be accurate with slugs at 100 yards.

Put a scope or red dot on it, or at least adjustable sights.

Kudos to your son, for being that consistent, at 100 yds, using a bead sight.

 

+1 to what tucker said. Sights or a scope.

We have shipped the gun back to Benelli to have it checked out. Maybe I didn’t post correctly, but at 100 ft not yards it shoots 7-8 inches to the left.

 

My old one, that I have got when I was 12 (45years ago) I can hit a soda can consistently at 100-150 feet. My son can shoot that well with it also.

 

Hopefully they can find the problem, as I took it to a gunsmith and had the barrel checked. He was concerned about how the choke threads were drilled.

If the gun shoots consistant like you stated, "6 inches left" then just make sure that is were he aims for now. It can take several days and half dozen different types of slugs to get the gun sighted in on a bullseye. Then again you may NOT do any better but spent a bunch of money on slugs. Harvey Pennick (renouned golf instructor) once said: "YOU dance with whom you brought to the ball" So keep what you have for now and aim to the left 6-inches!;):)

I use an Aimpoint even though I have an M2 with the ghost ring sight on it. It will shoot like a rifle out to 100 yards with that red dot.
