Anybody tried slugs out of their v3...
Point of aim?
Grouping?
What choke?

No, but as to choke I would use the IC.

I wanted to hunt the last day of turkey (1 December) and first day of deer gun (2 December) with one shotgun so I used my V3 Turkey Pro. I patterned the shotgun with the stock Tru-Glo choke, red dot, and Winchester Long Beard XR #5s in September. I later found that my slugs (Federal Tru-Ball at $3.99 per box) were hitting a 1 inch high and left TIGHT pattern using a skeet choke (I forgot to bring my IC!) in November. I decided not to futz with the sight adjustment since I didn't have the IC choke.

I shot a nice 7 point on December 4th at 60 yards with the V3 Turkey Pro. Alas, no turkey for me this year.

I really like the V3, I have two, the Turkey Pro and a Real Tree Special Purpose 26 inch.

I’ve tried them at the range. Let’s not forget it is a shotgun with rifled slugs. I’m only using the regular bed with no optic on it. I had no problem hitting an 8 inch pie plate at 50 yards. Certainly nothing like a rifle but definitely a dead deer. If I had to guess I would say a 6 inch group at 50 yards
