    New Ammo for the New Shotgun

    These came highly recommended, I think I will try these in the new slug gun.

    They shoot like crap through my Remington also, but I love Federal shotshells for turkey and waterfowl.

    Maybe that is good because I went to Cabela's and changed my mind. I am going to try these first. Will see what happens after that.

    No I have not seen any 16 ga. but, I will take a look the next time I go out.

    As far as the test results go it will have to wait till you or Allen are free. I am not with Putnam anymore. I still want to get a scope for it anyway.

    My Remington 870 with a Hastings barrel does not like any of the light bullet (385 g), fast speed (1800 fps) sabots.

    Really bad with the Winchester Supremes, all over the place?

    I've had the best luck with Winchester BRI's (same lot #'s), fist sized groups at 100 yards.

    Curious to know how you make out.

    What gun you shooting?

    It's a Mossberg 535 ATS Slugster 12 ga. with a fully rifled barrel. I won it last week at a QDMA seminar. I haven't shot it yet. I need to get a scope for it because the old eye's aren't like they use to be. I'm sort of in between clubs right now which is the only place I can shoot, don't own enough land myself to do it.

    Re: New Ammo for the New Shotgun

    Andy, I will certainly do that. I was kinda hoping to find a scope for it first but, that might be a little bit. Although my rifle will be here soon and that I will be able to take so I will let you know for sure.
