    Ditto. Standard Foster slugs are too soft. What ever you use make sure you have the correct choke for the slug you are using. Open or Improved Cyl. are the best.

    Does anyone know where to find those slugs around ? They are backordered on Midway

    Rifled barrel, then +1 for the Hornady SST slug

    Sabot rounds perform very well out of rifled barrels

    Smooth bore 12 ga

    brenneke Orginal magnum 2 3/4" 1 1/8 oz
    or Brenneke Special Forces Maximum Barrier Penetration Magnum Slug (located at FWA PX and Walmart)


    Federal has a penetrator slug also that is harder should do quite well.

    suggest cylinder or Improved Cylinder choke

    that is what I use for bear protection at home and camp

    Northern Security has the best price, you can find them at Walmart too.
