I'm planning to carry my 12 gauge smooth-bore for bear-protection this summer, and trying to decide on the slug to use.
If I had a rifled barrel, the choice would be easy: Dixie's 730 gr. slug would win hands-down.
However, I don't have a rifled barrel, so I'm choosing between the Dixie "Penetrator II" and the Brenneke "black magic." I think that they're both 600 gr.???
Any advice would be great.
