Thread: anyone use slugs for deer ?

    anyone use slugs for deer ?

    Hi all,

    I would just like some advice from anyone who has actually used or uses them on deer ? If so could you please get in touch as I would like to pick your brains.

    Unusual I know but I need to look at all possible options before I commit to an approach to a small problem.


    Regards Mark

    I hate the way the slime gets all over my hands so have given up on them.

    I find you just can't drive them fast enough, there's just a gooey smear and a burnt smell as they leave the barrel

    (Sorry cervushunter we're being no help at all)

    Why does it have to be slugs? what's wrong with a rifle of the appropriate calibre?

    I have experience with shotgun and rifles of appropriate calibre already in various situations but I have none with slugs and I'm thinking that it may or may not help with my situation.
    I completely understand if people would rather pm , email or we can discuss over the phone.

    Perhaps if you were to be a little more specific regarding the situation ......

    Attachment 26517 As mentioned here is my zero at 50yards with a fairly open choke on a semi auto. got a much better grouping from a much tighter choked 12g baikal! Will have to put a tighter choke in the semit auto and tighten this a bit.
