This has been my experience as well. Nothing fancy and very effective.

I like the Winchester 15 round bargain packs. I use the 2 3/4" for sighting the gun in and target practice. My gun shoots both very well. I have a Mossberg 500 with a rifled barrel. I have a 4x fixed power scope mounted on the pump gun.

If you have a rifled barrel you can get a lot more range from sabots. I have good luck with federal fusion and the Winchester 300 gr sabots.

Standard Winchester super x rifled slugs work better than Remington slugger from my experience. 2" groups from a 24" break over with those. Now Winchester makes rack master slugs. Higher velocity, more aggressive rifling, & 1650fps from a 1 1/8 oz foster slug with winglide plastic stabilizer out of a 2 3/4" shell. Idk what the accuracy is like. Federal makes slugs with truball technology. Basically a ball bearing between the slug & wad so it can move freely & be more accurate. They also offer a high antimony lead version that's copper plated for deep penetration. If a basic rifled slug can do good I'm sure they do too. I'll post a pic of internals from the slugs.

Left to right: Winchester super X 1oz hallow point rifled slug 2 3/4", Winchester rack master 1 1/8oz hallow point rifled slug 2 3/4", federal premium deep penetrater 1oz hallow point rifled slug 2 3/4", federal premium 1oz hallow point rifled slug 3".

Buy a 15 round pack of both the Remingtons and the Winchesters. Set up some targets at the ranges you will be most like;ly to fire on an animal, and check group placement and size. Go with the one that performs best with your shotgun.

As far as 3 inch slugs go, don't bother with them would be my advice. I have hunted with 2 and 3\4 and 3 inch in the past, and the 2 and 3\4 will kill a deer just as dead. As to the more or less accurate claims, it depends on the shooter and the gun. With my 870, the difference is about a half inch at 50 yards, my wife's 500 is about the same, still well within minute of deer IMHO. Bigger powder charge and more velocity with the 3 inchers are the main difference, not really worth the heavier recoil at 50 yards and under IMO.

Basically, see what the gun likes and go with it.
