best slugs for Rem 870 Police
receiving my first shotgun soon, a new Rem 870P 18" 12ga . only allowed to shoot slugs at local gun range. is there a 'preferred' slug for this gun ? How about shot (for when i get to shoot outdoors this spring ) ? Thanx for any advice and opinions ! I'm pumped to get this new toy (sorry-no pun intended)

That gun will eat anything. As for the best slug, try out a few different brands and see which performs best. Most should perform similar though. As for shot, pretty much anything will do. Especially if you're just practicing or plinking.

In my experience the best grouping slugs for a smooth bore are Federal Tactical. Velocity is cut back a tad, but the target will not know the difference. Remington "Slugger" slugs are generally the worst for accuracy, but you never know, give them a try. Your gun may like them.

I've had good luck with Remington "Sluggers" inside 50 yards, most indoor ranges I visit are 50 or less.

I've had great results from the Federal TRUEBALL slugs

I have had the best luck with the Winchester super xs

One more vote for Federal Tactical slugs. As far as shot it depends on what your plans are SD, hunting, target, clays etc.

Brenneke was recommended in Alaska but a little harder to find.

My local indoor range is only 25 yards so shooting slugs you have aim low. And its not something I like to do. So I normally only shoot my shotgun outdoors.

I would give Nobel slugs a try. They are reduced recoil. Compared to a hunting slug they are reduced recoil anyway. Winchester Super X have given me the best accuracy in my hunting shotguns. Super X slugs will usually shoot a 2" group at 60 yards.
