You are both right; and both wrong. :shock:

Assuming you want to hit what you are shooting at, Foster slugs do not compare at all favorably with saboted slug loads in rifled barrels. Not even close in trajectory or accuracy.

While the A-5 is a fabulous shotgun, a Belgian barrel is far from the strongest-- not suitable for steel shot unless you don't mind bulging the barrel near the muzzle.

Your intended use is not stated, so I really have no idea what you are trying to do, nor do I have any idea what choke your A-5 currently is.

A great field gun, but not remotely "the best" for long range deer hunting, nor is it easily scoped.

The question is, what is it your want your A-5 to do, exactly? Mine kill doves and pheasants, and have for over forty years.
