I shoot both Winchester and Federal rifle slugs. Depending onwhatI'm feeling that day. Federal has never fail me, but Winchester has been so accurate at the range that I don't want to let it go too.

I am quite partial to Brenneke. 3" Gold Magnums (1-3/6 oz.) or the 2-3/4" Heavy Field Magnums (1-1/4" oz.). Thru my H&R Ultra Slug Hunter Deluxe in 12 gauge.

1900 fps slow I dont think so. You cant shoot 150 yards accuratly with rifled slugs.
http://www.hornady.com/story.php?s=148zerod at 150 only 2 to 2.5 high at 50 and 100 thats a flat shooter.
http://www.winchester.com/products/catalog/shotdetail.aspx?symbol=X12RS15&use=3&gauge =12zerod at 50 shoots 12 inches low at 125
Thats why I shoot sabots

I have never been brand loyal when it comes to ammo. I will use what ever works best out the gun I intend on using. I usually have pretty decent luck with winchester ammo though.

As far as slugs go, I haven't shot all of them or enough to make a confident answer yet. I know what doesn't work in mine, and that is lightfield and the faster federal barnes loads. Niether would shoot worth a darn at 100 yards out of my H&R ultra. Winchester platinums did pretty well though. And it seems to like simple rifled slugs as well until the barrel leads up.

I used brenneke gold magnums this year as well but they were so-so out of it. And they didn't do much to the deer I shot either. Punched a nice clean hole right thru it and it ran about 100 yards. Lung heart shot at about 20 yards, not shoulder. I still need to try some of the other sabot offerings but I ran out of money and time for this season. There are several I would still like to try before making a final decision.
