Remington Premier AccuTip Bonded Sabot Slugs
I have a Mossberg 835 with a Slugster Barrel. I normally shoot Remington 3" Copper Solid slugs out of the gun, but BassPro in Hampton, VA was out of those shells week before last. I bought 2 boxes of the 3” Premier AccuTip 385 Grain Bonded Sabot Slug shells. The first time I pulled the trigger on a doe the gun misfired. I test shot the gun after that and the shot fired fine, so I assumed it was a fluke. The next time out I pulled the trigger twice on a nice wide 8 pt. buck and both times the gun misfired. Needless to say I ejected all those shells and will never try them again.

Simply awesome performance
I have finally found a slug that i feel completely confident in. I have taken many deer using this slug, and it flattens them. For the first time last week, i recovered a slug from a deer i shot at 150 yards. The slug expanded to the size of a quarter. My longest shot was 183 yards, and the deer dropped in it's tracks....they are accurate, and deadly. Nuff said.

I am a believer now...
The Remington AccuTip 2 3/4 20 gauge is the best we have used so far, much better than the Hornady SST and Winchester Supreme Gold Partition IMHO. My 16 year old son, who seldom shoots, did a 1.6" 3-shots group yesterday... That might not be tight enough to some shooters but it's good enough for us. We used a Savage 220F with a cheap 2-7x33 scope.

Worth the Money
Switched to these slugs because I bought a new H&R 20ga single shot. Sighted in groupings at 100 yds that could never achieve with any 12 ga slug/gun combo.
Three shots this year, three deer down. No deer ran more than 80 yards when hit in the boiler room with these. Most accurate slug I've hunted with and the stopping power is as advertised.
Drawback is their cost. Reward is that once you're sighted in, aim, squeeze and enjoy the results. Definitely will be using these for the long term. Very happy with the results and recommend highly.
Note: Shot both the 3 inch and the 2 3/4 inch. Advise the 2 3/4 as they are a little less in cost and recoil without sacrificing long range accuracy or stopping power.
