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.

Good Slugs Hornady ammunition has always been excellent choice for me. It lives up to it's reputation. These slugs make my daughter's Mossberg 500, 20ga, w/rifled barrel and 2x7 Leupold scope, a sniper gun out to 150 yds. Plenty of knock down power on whitetail. I like the combination so much that I borrow it from time to time. My only complaint is the price of the ammo. There's no reason a 20ga slugs should cost almost $3 each. That's more than my 300WSM.

Super Slugs These slugs are awesome. Shot them from my Remington 870 with a aftermarket cantilever barrel and was very pleased with the results. They shot as good of groups as any slug out there, about 1'' groups at 50 yards. And i was able to harvest my biggest buck ever with them this year, deer ran about 50 to 60 yards and that was it. No performance issues whatsoever. December 17, 2013
Great Buy Best shotgun I have ever used. I shot 3 shots at 50 yards and had less than a 2" group. Shot 3 shots at 100 yards and had the same results. Pick some up December 1, 2013
SUPER GROUP I cannot get over the groups I shot with these Hornady Sabot Slugs. You will have to talk to yourself to control your flintch, but if you do, these slugs can shoot 2" or better groups at 100yards and that was with iron sights. I couldn't test them at longer distances as our range is only 100yards. I sampled some others but I will only use Hornady Sabot Slugs in my rifled shotgun barrel. Getusum! October 24, 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.

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

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.

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: 
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.

Scott,

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.

Good Luck,

Doug

A: 
Yes they do. Anytime you put a sabot slug inside a smooth barrel you'll get the power of that slug but it won't go the distance it's supposed to,and it won't shoot nearly as straight. I would imagine this would eventually ruin your shotgun. That's why it's important to use a fully rifled barrel for the Hornaday's. I would suggest H&R 20 GAUGE Tracker II. It's my favorite deer shotgun with these bullets.

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: 
It should not damage a smooth bore but it is probably not worth the money to shot a sabot unless it is riffled.

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.
