M1 20ga. slug gun


Recommended Posts

Hi folks. I've got a M1 20ga. slug gun and was looking for recommendations on what everyone is shooting. I'm not getting the groups I would like. So far I have shot the Lightfields and Winchester Platinum tips. The lightfields shoot better but I was wondering what all you guys were shooting and what kind of groups you are getting. Thanks.

-Open sights (iron sights/rifle sight)?

-Scope and power setting?

-Red dot? type and size?


-Are you on a bench w/a rest?


-what range are you 'zeroing' at?


-what SIZE slugs have you been using??


...give the load info off the boxes of all you've tried and what results you've obtained at which distance and weather conditions?

I'm going to shoot again this week so I'll let you know. Yes, I am shooting off a bench with a Leupold 2x7 scope. I shot at 50 yards the other day and it seemed like I was getting some vertical stringing, may have just been me. I ran out of slugs to confirm this. I have only shot the 2 3/4 in. Lightfield EXP's and the 2 3/4 in. Winchester Platinum Tips so far. I don't know the weight and speed off hand, I pitched all the boxes. I was getting like 2-3 in. groups at 50 yards with the Winchester's being the better of the 2. I'll let you know when I shoot again this week.
