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 1 out of 5 by SaskBuckhunter Avoid these I hunt hard in the shotgun zone near Saskatoon. I usually spend about 30-40 evenings ot waiting for the whopper. This year I had my chance a large bodied 6x6 175-180 range+. I had my gun shooting excellent and I had this deer standing broadside at 113yds. I shot and the deer went about three feet vertical after a deafening crack of bone. I typically shoot for the shoulder and have never lost an animal. There was NO blood and he ran away with his whole shoulder and leg swinging. I followed his track for two hours and not one speck of blood. This bullet failed and cost me a buck of a lifetime. I will go back to something with more penatration, February 21, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by ssieb disappointed I bought a total of 6 boxes of these slugs this past summer. during the 1st shotgun season I shot a buck, no problem dropped him in his tracks at about 30 yards. About 15 minutes later 2 does came down the same trail, I pulled the trigger...CLICK. the primer was dented but shell did not fire, the does ran off. The during the last anterless season 2 does walked by me, shot once and missed, reloaded and pulled the trigger....CLICK! Reloaded again pulled the trigger and again....CLICK ! All of the primers dented but failed to fire! I then shot my gun at the range 7 times all fired, then killed 2 more does that evening. Needless to say I will be switching to a different brand of slugs. February 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Srunk Great Slug I have taken several deer with this 12 ga sabot with one shot. Including taking a doe at 147 yards this year . For the price you can't beat Hornady SST. December 29, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by livenlifegood Killer Slugs The Best I have used The Hornady SST 20 gauge 250 grain slugs are killer, Shot a box of them at the range on Thursday night got 2-3 inch groups. left on Friday after noon for the farm . Did not see a thing the first morning of youth season then that evening bout 25 minutes till the shooting light ends two does walked out they got with in 40-45 yards i aimed down my NIKON 2x7 shotgun hunter pro and let her have it we heard her crash down at a bottom then 5 minutes later a buck casing them does walked out at 65 yards i aim down the scope and pulled the trigger he dropped right there in his tacks got up ran 5-10 more yards and piled up so 2 deer in less than 10 minutes of each other killed we also did find the doe. the bullets passed though both deer. THE BUCK DRESSED OUT AT 175 pounds the DOE DRESSED OUT AT 190 POUNDS. SO I AM HOOKED ON THE HORNADY SST SLUGS ! November 22, 2010

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.
