    Slugs for Bear

    You slug gun combo is enough to whack any bear. As with any other gun/ ammo combo, a different variety of loads need to be tried to see your gun likes. As a midwest boy raised with a 12 ga. it was the only choice we had to hunt deer. But guns and slugs have improved so much over the years,that I...

    Recovering slugs what can we learn.

    re-marc I used the 2 3/4 they seemed to be accurate in my setup and were easy to find. I was sigthed dead on at 125, which made me about 3" low at 175, about my max range.

    Accutip sabots in Africa

    I rate AccuTip Slug the best I too am from the Midwest and used to using a slug gun, that is why I took it to Africa. I had been Remington's core-lokt slug with good success. But the look of the Accutip made me give it a try. Right off the bat I was shooting 1" groups at 50yds and 2 1/2' groups...

    Hunting Bushpig

    Kouga Wilderness I just did a bush pig hunt in the Kouga wilderness area in SA. Although it should have been call mountian bush pig.

    Accutip sabots in Africa

    I have just returned from my first African trip for plains game. Nothing new, except I took my trusty Remington 870 with Remington's new Accutip sabot slug. My PH had no experience with slug or slug hunters, but was willing to try. And try we did. Now 200yds is about to outside range of this...
