Think a 20 gauge shotgun slug lacks power?
You'd better watch this video of these 300 yard deer kills. These hunters nail their deer with a 20 gauge shotgun way out there.
Back some years ago, the guys from DettyOutdoors were hunting deer in Ohio during gun season. Back then shotgun slugs were the rule for using a long gun. A bolt action shotgun loaded up with slugs is just a close range weapon right?
Does the 20 gauge shotgun slug have what it takes for a 300 yard shot? In expert hands, with a well zeroed load from a great shooting rifled barrel shotgun, it is indeed possible as this video proves three times over.
