Well deer season starts monday, excited is a good word to discribe things. Well last year I used Brenneke K.O. slugs, this year I might use the same but am looking for better slugs out there. Heres my setup incase you need to know, I use a Remington 870 express synthetic with a 20-21" barrel (never measured it) with a rifled choke tube, I also have a 4x scope on a Remington shotgun scope mount. Anyone got some suggestions? I have used Remington rifle slugs in the past, they gave me horrible accuracy so I stopped using them.

Try Remington copper solids. MIKE.

In a rifled barrel I'd suggest Federal's Barnes Expander. In a smooth bore You might like Federal's Premium Rifled slug..

I'd also suggest you try the type you like from each of the "big three" ammo manufacturers. I may be a chauvenist when it comes to Federal ammo, but the fact is every firearm can be finicky about what ammo it likes. I liken it to feeding a cat. The cat will let you know what it likes... not the other way around.

I feel fortunate to live in a state where you can hunt with rifles. I like the Winchester hollow point sabots though.

In New York we have rifle zones, shotgun only zones and bow only zones. In some of the shotgun zones you can also use a handgun but here on Long Island it is shotgun only no hand guns.

Fedgunner is right you should try all three major brands but since you are using a rifled choke tube also try regular foster style slugs also. MIKE.

I like the Winchester BRI sabot rounds. Have shot many deer with them, and they always go down like they have been sledge hammered.
