Default Winchester XM3 Sabot Slugs

Has anyone ever used these? Picked up a box to try out just haven't been able to find very much info on them. Looking at using them this deer season.

I have been using 300 grain XP3 winchester slugs. They are as good as advertised fired from my Mossberg with a rifled barrel. A friend has been using the dual bond with great success. We have yet to have a contest but one Sunday it will happen. We both have take 3 deer each with our shotguns so far. He is one up on me with a decent 7 point. Mine have all been does. The upside is all my does have been about 100 lb super tender size. His buck was over 160 lb and quite musky.

The XP3 is a rifle bullet packed into a shotgun shell. They are dead on! The dual bond is a more traditional slug.

Midway had both in stock last time I checked. There is a $5 rebate on all winchester bonded ammo.

I picked up a box at my local Farm and Fleet for 11 bucks on sale this last weekend. They had quite a few boxes in stock which worried me alittle since they didn't have alot of others in stock. Might have to swing in and buy a few more boxes before they are gone. What do you shoot 2 3/4 or 3 inch?
