for me 60yds for rifled slug, and out to 100 for rifled barrel and sabot, maybe a lil more. some guys take it way out, the new test bed is 200 consistant. so far its with special handload ammo. to me, anything over 100 to 125 is rifle terratory, but im not the best slug shooter either. my slug gun is a multi-barreled multi-season shooter. for real long distance, a dedicated slug gun is needed. you post a kinda loaded question as you could prob hit something far far away but to say kill a deer sized game the retained energy needed as i see it would be a 200yrd max for a clean humaine kill, with hot hot handloads and a shooter with skills way beyond mine.

try the slug shooters forum.

Try some lightfields. I shoot a little 7 pointer at close to 125 yards. Hit him right where I wanted both lungs and lodged in the opposit shoulder. No tracking had it sighted for 100yds. I have a 500 with a rifled barrel and 2.5 to 7x32 pineridge scope. Shooting 3" ISD sabots they really work. :wink:
