Howdy. This being my first thread Iíll try to make it concise and to the point to hopefully avoid the "aww effin noob" comments...
I've been a long time shotgun shooter but never really got into shooting slugs. I have fired a few dozen of them but usually only with the hopes of hitting a target 25 yards away thatís the size of a watermelon. In my interwebz searching Iíve seen people claim they can hit accurately a pie plate size target up to 200 yards with a low power scope or rifle sights.
Now I never thought of a rifled slug to be that accurate but my question is this; would it be realistic to think I could make a decent group of holes in a target at 100-150 yards with a smoothbore shotgun firing rifled slugs? I understand that the load and gun itself make a difference but let's just assume Iím using a standard generic setup 870 26" bead 2 3/4 slugger. If it is possible to be accurate out to that distance what kind of sights would you recommend? I'm not a big fan of relying on glass so I would prefer to stay away from scopes.
Thanks for your time/input.
