It's not important man; kind of an inside thing with a few of the old-timers. Please, continue with your threading.

It all depends on distance. The old rule-of-thumb was have 1000 ft/lbs for deer size game. A regular 12 ga 2-3/4" 1 oz slug has about 1000 ft/lbs at about 130 yards.

I do during fire arms season out of my Mossberg 500 rifled barrel.
The last deer I shot only took 3 more staggering steps after the shot then dropped.
Here in Indiana it is about the most powerful round we can use.

U have been hunting here in Chautauqua county NY for 25 years. Untill last year, all we could ever use is slugs. I have never had to track a deer more than 60 yards when I have shot it. I have used 20 and 12 gauge slugs out to 75 yards, and generally speaking, I have always found 2 holes for every shot that I have placed. One in, one out. about 1/3 of the deer I have shot dropped right where they were hit.That third were all hit within 40 yards, and 2 of them were head shots. One ounce of lead, traveling at 1,350 FPS, is very devastating. I have taken 4 bears in the last 20 years, and only one was with a rifle. The other 3 were with a 12 gauge 2 3/4 slug at 30 yards. If I had to choose a round to depend on based on stopping power, it would be a 12 gauge 2 3/4 or 3 inch slug.

Ever seen mythbuster where they were testing bullets fired into water and the 12ga slug went though the bottom of the tank and flooded the shop ? .50 bgm did not even do that .
I got slugs ready to rock in my judge and feel for who ever gets hit with them .
Also know first hand that a 12 ga slug with go through a engine block with ease
