I like the H&R's for the money, but I would get a Savage 210 if I had the money. Honestly for those ranges I would really consider an inline muzzle loader if you can use one. From what I have seen 150 yards is pushing the limit for accuracy with a slug gun, even with the modern loads. I mean they have the potential and the power to do it, but I haven't seen many that are truly accurate at that range. All depends on what you consider accurate as well.

I think a muzzle loader would be easier and cheaper to get realistic 150 yard accuracy out of, I have seen many that shoot pretty well out to 200 yards.

+1 for the H&R USH 20 gauge. Mine is the most accurate slug gun I've owned.

The H&R USH 20ga should do the job for you, but I would second taking a look at a muzzleloader. They are generally a bit easier to find an accurate load at longer ranges with.
