Default H&R 12 gauge

I had to break down and buy a slug gun. I usually hunt with a rifle but have obtained access to land that is in a shotgun only county. I purchased a H&R 12 gauge ultra slug hunter with a Nikon scope. I dont have tons of money left to go playing with sabot slugs. I know each gun has its own favorite ammo but I was wondering which works best for you. I can afford to buy a few boxes to try out but want to gather as much info as possible as to what works the best for you all. Any input would be helpfull. Thanks

Lightfields and I found that most will tell you the same. Also the 2 3/4 shoot better than the 3"
