12 ga. slug story...

Gander Mountain was having a sale this weekend so I picked up various 12 ga. slug ammo to try out for s#!ts and grins. Got some Federal Vital Shok Truball low recoil, Brenneke K.O.'s, and Remington High Velocity. Went to the range today to test out effective distances. Started with the K.O.'s - liked those. Then the Feds.- Decent too. Then I loaded in a Remington H.V. which BTW are 1800 fps slugs! Pulled the trigger and the damn thing jumped so hard it knocked my ear muffs off right into the trash can!:D Loved 'em! The range owner's son was watching and he LHMFAO!

Every Once In A While I'm Stupid Enough To Kick Off A Few Lightfield Commanders In My Mossberg 835. Talk About Painful! The 1-1/16oz. (465gr) Slug At 1900 Fps From A 3-1/2 Inch Shell Hasn't Knocked My Muffs Off But Has Made My Right Arm Numb And Left A Bruise Through Shoulder Padding Which Lasted A Week And A Half. I Do Enjoy The Looks On Peoples Faces Though When They See And Hear That Cannon Fire.
