    hi as you guys all know you can see on my picture my personal favourite weapon : the doublebarreld shotgun i like this gun because its a great bird hunting gun . i never used this gun on moose , elk , bears . because it doesn't have the oppertunity to kill your target from range .. but i used this gun 1 time and thats for defense . well my cadle was eaten from a European bear (btw i live in turkey) so i shot the bear BOOM...BOOM the bear whas killed i think 1 meter (3foot) distance. but is this gun good for hunting on big animals like a moose or boars ( remember i shot the bear on very close distance ) so is this good for hutnign regluair animals for 30 foot or so ????

    I wouldnt use it on anything bigger than some medium sized boar. I dropped about a 150 pound boar with a 12ga slug from about 20 yards, but i shot it in the neck and broke its spine, but I also took a shot at about a 300 pound boar from around 10yds, hit it, and it just pissed if off.

    I had a Stevens Model 311 (cheap side by side) that I sawed off to 20 inches for a cabin gun when I lived in the woods. It would keep slugs within 2" at 25 yards without a bead on the front. I never killed anything but grouse with it, but I took it with me fishing and to run bears out of the yard and never felt under-armed.

    While I don't use my double barrel for hunting (Its almost 95 years old) I do use my dads Remingtion 870 Express Magnum. Anyways, There are several things that can effect the distance of your shotgun.
    So I have a few questions.

    What size shell do you typically use in your gun? 2 3/4'', 3'' or 3 1/2''?

    Do you use Buckshot or a Slug?

    Does your shotgun have differing Chokes? My Double barrel has one Modifed and One Full.

    Ah ha! 20 gauge. My workhorse. I have a single-shot 20 ga. Used it for everything from Squirrel to Deer. My most amazing feat with it so far was a 4 year old gobbler at 50yds with a 2 3/4 '' Birdshot shell.

    Well, I've never hunted either Moose or boar with my 20 gauge, But I'd think that it'd be good for Boar within a reasonable distance. Just be able to reload like bat out of hell incase you get charged.
