Hornady® SST Shotgun Slug Shotshells
The Hornady® SST Shotgun Slugs transform your favorite rifled barrel slug gun into a weapon that outperforms some centerfire rifles. Super-accurate bullet delivers sub-2" groups at 100 yards; and the flattest trajectory on the market. Polymer tip helps it slice through the air, minimizing drop and wind drift. When the bullet hits its target, the tip expands violently, transferring energy payload to the target for a swift kill. 5 pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RJSVA22554 Consistent Groupings I recently purchased a Remington Factory 23 inch Fully Rifled Barrel with 2-7x32 Scope for my Remington 870 to take to Tenn for a Boar Hunt. For me personally, the Hornady SST shells provided the best groups at 50 and 100 yards, I also shot Remington 2 3/4 ACCUTIPS and the Federal Vital-Shok. At 50 yards they were all good but (for me)the SSTs were the tightest and provided a more consistent grouping at 100yards. Again just a personal preference...we did get three good size hogs on are trip, two of us with the SSTs and one using ACCUTIPs. Good Luck April 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jhog simply the best Compared these to Remington Cor Lok. Both are good so don't get me wrong. But from 75 yards with open sighted H&R 20guage the Hornaday's were much tighter. Shot a doe from 40 yards, double lung with same gun this past season in MI. She went all of 20 yards and dropped. Best shot I've ever had. Great slugs! February 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by JDL25 BEST OF BOTH WORLDS this round is absolutly as devistating on impact as it is acurate. i have been shooting these for 2 years and have taken 4 deer and 1 hog. the hog was out past 160 yards and the deer up to 130 yards. i never had to track any of them. these being not as expensive as some of the other 12 guage slugs and having the performance they do it is a win all around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fldbear Great range... I have used these slugs exclusively since dropping a mature doe at just over 200 yards with my heavy rifle barrel single shot two years ago! Great range and power! January 17, 2013

Details:Are these slugs really capable of 100 yd. shots? I have a H & R rifled slug gun and I haven't been able to sight in at 100 yrds. Great at 25 yds. and pretty good at 50 but not on paper at 100. How much do they drop at 100 yds? Maybe I just haven't held over enough for that distance.
A:GL...I had pretty good luck with these. I am using a Remington 870 with a 23 inch rifled barrel. I sighted in about 1 to 1.5 inch above aimpoint at 50 yards and that got me a good group on aimpoint at 100 yards. I felt very comfortable at that range that I could get clean heart shot. Remington ACCUTIPS and Federal Vital-Shok were also decent performers. Try a few brands and see which work best for you. Good Luck
A:I don't know what you are doing? I dropped a matue doe with my scoped, heavy rifle barrel H&R single shot slug gun and she was over 200 paces away. I stand 6 foot tall and step over a yard. With Hornady slugs I easily shoot 2 inch groups at 150 yards and 1 1/2 inch at 100. If you are shooting iron sights it's time to get a good scope. At 62 years of age no more iron sights for me!
A:depends on whether your gun likes them. They are definitely capable of 2" groups at 100 yds. I shot 2" groups at the range with my Rem 870 slug gun last week.
A:I shoot a Mossberg 695. I have my gun sighted in with these slugs and the are amazing! I consistentaly shoot sub 2" groups at 100 yds. I sighted it in 3" high at 100 yds. That will get you 2.5" high at 50, dead on at 150 and 6.5 low at 200. I have killed deer aut to 175 with this set up. Make sure you have a good scope (ie 3x9x40) to get the best preformance out of your gun.
A:Yes very accurate but shoot through the ribs and avoid the shoulder.
A:Zero it in at 50 yards, and you should be good at 100 yards, just hold about 4 inches higer than you would at 50 yards. If you are shooting rom a bench with a nice rest, you should be almost able to hit the same hole at 50 yards, if not you should be looking at the condition of the gun and maybe a different barrel. These slugs absolutely ventilate deer.
I don't know about an H&R slug gun and you did not mention the gage, scope or
iron sights. I have a Savage 20 ga. with
a scope and it shoots great , within, 2 inches @ 100yds. You have to use sabot
slugs and they work great. They make range finder scopes for slug guns.
I suggest zeoring it it at 100yds and then
moving the target to 125, 150, etc. No one
can tell you how your particular gun will
shoot. That is up to you to find out.
A:I tried them in my 870 fully riffled ,did not shoot good for me.keep triing different slugs .

A:they drop at about if the gun was sighted in at 75 yards it will have only dropped if it is a 12 gauge 1 1/2-2 1/2 inches
A:you want to use the SST in a rifled barrell. they will shoot in a smooth bore but you will have inconsistant results as the bullet will not have the rotation needed.
A:Hornady SST's have a warning printed on the box. "For rifled barrels only"
A:It should not damage a smooth bore but it is probably not worth the money to shot a sabot unless it is riffled.
A:According to hornady's website these shells are for use in fully rifled barrels only.
A:You'll have to call the company on that one, but I wouldn't recommend them with a smooth barrel. I'd use Winchester Super X slugs with a normal barrel. They have rifled grooves built right into the slug, which will make them spin even with a smooth barrel.
