I just got in from killing a spike, using the 12 gauge2 3/4 Remington Solid Coppers. The slug went throught both shoulders at about 45 yards. Dropped him right in his tracks. I think you will be happy with the load you chose and sounds like you picked a great scope also. Good Luck and be safe.

You're talking about my most favorable gun in my safe.

I have a 12 Gauge H&R Ultra Slug and have never missed with this gun to date. Knock on wood.

Here is what I have done to be successful hunting in an area that allows for long range shots.

Sighting In:
I sighted my H&R in with zero wind in a vice for 3 inches high at 100 yards

At 150 yards my gun is zero -I aim dead onand am very lethal at this range.

Ammo:
I use Hornady SST's going 2000 fps with 6.5 inch drop at 200 yards.

A must have for long range shots:
I use a Nikon Range Finder. I need the range finder for shots past 150 yards when my bullet is decending. It's like throwing a baseball. Understand this gun and how it acts and you will harvest ever animal that walks in your path. It's all about confidence.

DO NOT
Do not go cheap on a scope for this gun. The H&R Ultra Slug wants you to push it to the limit. I'm running a 2X7 Leopold on mine. I want a 3X9 for it but I'm afraid to move anything.

Here is a group at 100 yards with my H&R. I took a doe at 218 yards this year with mine. Nikon Range Finder and placed the cross hairs on the spine with low wind conditions. Good Luck!!

Love the Lightfields!

BUT... HEAVY HEAVY HEAVY if he is looking at 150+ yard shots. The H&R wants us to take it past 150 yards! Good Luck!
