Whos got one, how do you like it, what do you hate about it, what are you using for scope?ammo, what are you getting for accuracy, I have one comming in 20 gauge and am really excited to see how well it shoots.

I have used several different slugs in my H&R slugster, by far the most accurate have been the 2-3/4" & 3" remington accutips.

Got my 12 ga during hunting season. Didn't have time to shoot many slugs. Stuck with the Hornady SSTs. Getting 2 1/2" 100yd groups. Killed 2 does with it first day out. Since then I've accumulated the accutips, winchesters, etc and can't wait to find out which it likes best.

Got a few 12's and a 20. Straight 4X scope. All are easily good past 100 yards. No sabots for me with the 12 gauges. 2-3/4" & 3" Brennekes serve me very, very well. My son shoots 3" Brennekes in his 20. They've made for alot of dead deer.

We love their accuracy and bank vault lockup. Some guys don't like the weight but we've never evn thought about what they weigh or don't weigh. I guess you could look at the USH the same way the women look at me. They never even consider or notice the weight due to the awesome strength and outstanding performance.

I've been using one for 4 years, I have it in 20ga. topped off with a Leupold VX-II in 3-9x40, using 2-3/4" Hornady, I'm about 1" high at 100yards, getting clover leafs.

I love this shotgun !!!!!

I've had one for 4 years. Got a Leopold VIII- 2-8x36 on it. Love the set up, and it shoots Lightfields great. Pretty much one big hole at 100yds. It is hevy, but i never notice the weight when im hunting.

I'd like a 20. Is there any advantage over a regular H&R 20 guage?

Oh yes there are advantages if you are comparing a Topper to an USH.

1. The much more rigid bull barrel.

2. The barrel is rifled.

3. Scope rail.

4. Weighted stock.

5. Sling swivels.

I want one, and have wanted one for a few years, and am going to get one My current slug gun is a Mossberg 695 bolt, (ugly as it gets!!) but a good shooter, I have lusted after a UH for awhile and when I do finealy get one Uncle Matt is going to help me set it up (I hope) I want to know more about bullet selection, I use the sabots in the Mossberg and they are great (it is not fussy) I have read many posts pertaining to the Ultra Hunter and I think Matt knows what he is talking about, (Althought he may be a little confused as to the way he thinks women look at him) (just kidding) But if Matt reads this I was wondering if he would comment on the pros and cons of a 20 vs 12 ga, I am leaning towards a 20.
