Pumpkin Killer slugs-- Video Empty
PostSubject: Pumpkin Killer slugs-- Video   Pumpkin Killer slugs-- Video EmptyJune 1st 2017, 6:07 pm

I have been a Shotgun guy for 50 years.


I have a fascination with anything that will pass through the bore. Slugs, Buck, .69 round ball, Buck and Ball--- on and on. I've posted most of this on other blogs.

But I just got new video.

Got the kid to take some video of my home made Pumpkin Killer slugs in action. They are a un split long range wad with loose shot and a cap glued on top. They explode inside the target. These are 1 1/2 gal jugs of water at about 20'.
Sorry the link was bad. will try latter.
-------------
--------------
 I got to test my loads on something other than paper. Got a better idea of what they do.

I got 2 pumpkins about 20 lb each. Hit each with 1 round at 30'. I filled each with water through small holes on top.


#1 shows size with thermos . (the thermos has had a hard life)

#2 is the front of my Win PDX 12 copy. Buck and slug.

#3 is the back (exit) of the PDX.

#4 is the back of the pumpkin slug. You see the front in the other shot.

The frangible slug comes apart in side the target.

PDX punched through.

I hit them both a little higher than I wanted but I don't think that mattered !

I am happy with both. Good day at the range.

This is off hand at 50 yards from a 18" cylinder bore.  Next time I will try the kids 28" imp.

Sorry. I was going to post some video but turned out it might have bugs so I pulled it. When my tec guy/son in law gets back I will find a safe way to do it.

Slugs are effective on deer sized game at short ranges.
I took lots of deer with a slug back when there were only Foster (rifled) slugs
and smooth bore shotguns.

If one could tune the shotgun and ammo one could hold 3" @ 100.
Plenty accurate enough.

"Good enough" has never been good enough for me.

I've seen "hunters" (not shooters) at the range back when slugs only was legal in Ohio
for deer.

They'd set up cardboard at 25 yards, hit it someplace and call it "good enough".
No wonder after deer season we'd see dead gut shot deer and deer with legs blown
off that were never recovered.

There are hunters and there as azzholes.

I killed one after season that had THREE missing legs.

Mercy killing.

It wasn't even close to being fit to eat.

Oozing puss, and very skinny.

For several years we would buy every Remington Model 870 and Model 1100 we could find in CO and WY. The older 2-3/4 inch guns are cheap, everyone has to have a 3 inch gun.

Side Note: We would purchase Remington Barrels for either one in 18-1/2" length rifled with cantilever mount in lots of 6 at a time (marked 3 inch we stamped that out). Add a red dot scope and sighted them in for 50 yards shooting Remington 2-3/4" slugs. My friend was a cop so he would show other police departments this setup making them a deal of six gun at a time. Usually a Captain would get approval for the purchases. We were kept busy one winter with either searching for guns at farms sales to guns shows or assembling guns.

As mentioned here before we held matches every month for the local police and county sheriff departments in north eastern CO. We started getting requests for shotgun matches, so we setup 20, 65, 85 and 105 yard targets (all at different distances that these guys were use to shooting). A full size B52 man target at 85 and 105 yards surprised everyone of how many killing hits they received with 500 grain rifle slugs.

We had sold a truck load of these guns, ran Midway out of barrels and was working on others inventory. Then I had to have one and couldn't find one of the cheap Remington's or a cantilever barrel for months. They are fun to show non believers what slugs will do.

I have a Hastings rifled barrel with a cantilevered scope mount for my 870. It shoots regular 2 3/4" Winchester 1 oz. slugs better than any of the sabot slugs I've tried. I never shot a deer over 65 yards with one though.

The first deer I ever killed was with a Remington 1 oz. slug with that 870 sporting a 26" IC smooth barrel. It was a bit over 105 yards. No scope was used just Kentucky windage ... and luck.

I killed a lot of deer with slugs before the inlines came out. I've killed enough that I am content to shoot a single shot rifle during the shotgun season the last several years. I've see my son shoot 2 liter bottles at 200 yds off the bench with his 870 cantilever scoped 1oz slugs. He never misses and it usually is DRT. 95% of our shots are under 100 yds and the rifled sabots do the job well.

I'm telling the non-believers that what these guys are saying is true. My family always shot SXS doubles in western PA, close shooting so they always used slugs for deer or bear since the late 1890's. They do the job big time.  t up

Growing up in Mass we had to use shotgun slugs for deer. I used a Win Model 12 and it kicked like a mule with those slugs. It knocked every deer down on the spot though.

The hardest kicking slug gun as a kid ever shot was a single shot Harrison-Richards .410, that damn thing made you hurt for several days. :tdown2

That's true. I started with the Win Model 12 which was a 12 gauge at about 10 years old and it hurt.

Hell, many years later shooting trap for a living I used a fancy Model 12 and it still hurt after a quick 100 rounds. I finally went to a Perazzi with a hydro-coil. That was really comfortable and I shot a lot better.

I don't care how tough anybody is. Lower recoil will make them shoot better.
