I am wondering what shotgun should I get if I am hunting some BIG game. Im not talking what gauge more of what manufacture? I want something dependable that will last a long while.
200 yards is about the absoulte maximum effective range of a 12 gauge. anything further and your just wounding.Maser said:I think pretty much any 12 gauge with a fully rifled bbl should do the job. The main thing you have to consider when slug gun hunting is distance from the animal and type of ammo used. Remember you're using a shotgun and not a rifle. A good quality sabot slug from a rifled bbl should be used on deer sized game at no more than 200 yards away.
