I shoot Rem. Sluggers 2 3/4" out of my Mossberg 535 28" smoothbore, shot a deer last year @ 95 yds. Just remember with a bead, beyond 75 yds you are covering up most of the deer. As stated pick up a box of each load i.e. win,rem, federal see which one shoots best out of your shotgun, then practice,practice,practice and practice some more at different ranges. Good Luck

i def agree. i bought my hastings barrel for my 12 gauge 870 and wont look back. i threw on a nikon monarch 3x9 and increased my range to 200 shooting 3in winchester partition golds. itll stay as my slug gun until i get that savage 220f.
