Looking at using an 870 with a rifled barrel this season. In the past I used Winchester Riffled Super X Hollow Point 2 3/4 out of an 870 smooth bore barrel with good results to about 60 yards. Looking to take advantage of the rifled barrel and have no idea as to what Sabot slug to use. What do all of you guys use. Thanks Mike

Different guns like different slugs even if they are the same make and model. You need to try different speed and weight combinations if you really want to know what shoots best out of you gun. Mine loves hastings and hates hornady. Some people with the exact same make and model have the exact opposite results. I'm afraid mine might like the $18 a box remington slugs so I have not tried them. I don't think it will though. It seems to like 1 oz slugs at about 1500fps best.
