I do a quick review of some shells I picked up at the gun store. Im using a Mossberg 500 Rolling Thunder. If you notice on the end of the barrel, it has what Mossberg calls a “compensator”. Its supposed to cut down on the upward kick of the gun and to suppress flashes. Also I was told that this model is also used for door breaching. Since I wont be doing to much of that its kinda pointless. But anyway, lets go!
1. First up is the Remington Slugger Rifled Slug. 1oz slug, 2 3/4″ length, 1560fps, 12ga
2. Second up on deck is the Winchester Rack Master HV. 1 1/8oz rifled, 2 3/4″ length, 1625fps 12ga.
3. Last up is the big boy, Winchester Magnum Super X Rifled Slugs, 1oz rifled, 3″ length, and 1760fps, 12ga.
Personally I enjoyed the Remington Slugger because it had the least recoil and was eastest to keep under control.
The Rack masters were a bit rough on the wrist. But had the best accuracy out of the three.
And the Super X was by far the most powerful with the most recoil. And man did these things kick and have a bite on them.
All in all it was a fun day. Maybe next time ill stick with low recoil slugs…
