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 slugslinger Finallly a slug that works in my 870 I tested Remington Accutips, Winchester Dual Bonded, Winchester Partition Gold, Fusions, Winchester XP3s and Hornadys. I sighted in with the cheaper Fusions that surprisingly gave me a 1" group at 50 yds. The XP3's, Dual Bonded, Accutips and Hornadys gave me good groups at 50. When I went to 100yds the only slugs that gave me a 2" group were the Hornady's. FINALLY!! The first shot 2" above the bullseye, the 2nd was dead center. The only other slugs that came close were the XP3's but one shot was a foot low and right, the next two were touching high and left with a very light wind. Conclusion... Hornady wins, but I've got to try sighting in with XP3's and give them another try. March 17, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by SuperHunter Hard Recoil and jammed in gun 12 gauge Single Shot shotgun. Jammed every shot. Used a cleaning rod to punch shell out. Slugs kicked hard. Not very accurate. Many recommend using this in a Mossberg Slug Gun. February 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by ButtonBucker First deer I went out and bought a new mossburg 500 I shot the remmington copper solids the brenake KO's and these hornadays and nothing came close to the hornadays. I bought this gun the day before the last two days of gun season and I had to line it in that day. I could only get to a 25 yard range but i first shot the cheap brenakes to get it close then i shot the remmingtons and was geting 1.5 inch groups at 25 yards then i loaded up the hornadays and i shot the bullseye on the first shot and every other shot was touching. Then i was hunting on the last day of the season a button buck ( i thought it was a doe) came 30 yards out and stoped quarter and away i put one behind his right shoulder and the bullet exited his left sholder breaking his leg and blowing out both lungs he went about 20 yards. These bullets have knockdown power. When i shot his i saw about a 2ft spurt of blood come out both sides and a piece of his lung was on the ground. The hole was about the size of a quarter or bigger. These are excellent slugs a great price and they dont kick that hard at all even out of a 12 gauge. and i will surely keep using them. December 20, 2011

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.
