Anybody ever shot a deer with a 10 ga. deer slug? Where can you get a 10 ga slug at a decent price?

There are some 10 gauge slugs out there but frankly they're not worth a damn. Ballistics just don't work when you're throwing a volkswagon at a deer 75 yards away.

Yeah i figured, I have five shotgun tags for illinois and have already killed two bucks with my bow. I was gonna try to get a doe in close and shoot it with a 10 ga. just for fun.

Federal Premium's Power-shok line has 10 gauge 3.5" slugs, they are between $5 and $7 a box. Federals Part Number is F103RS

Put it in the search engine of your favorite ammo dealer:
http://www.outdoorsuperstore.com
http://www.cheaperthandirt.com
http://www.commandsurplus.com

My bet is the doe won't go far with that big of a hole in her.

Good Luck and let us know how they work
