"The 20 inch smoothbore will not stabilize a slug to the point that it will group consistantly at longer ranges."

Not sure what you mean by "long" but my 20-1/2" smoothbore groups slugs nicely at 50 yards.



I also have to call out the guy that said "point and shoot and let the scatter take care of the varience in the aim." That's a Hollywood myth. Ever shot 00 buck out of a shotgun at 5 feet? 10 feet? 10 yards?

In trainings I have seen many complete misses from ranges that you wouldn't think possible.

HD sight in

For my HD shotguns i measured the farthest distance the shotty could be used inside my house, for me that's 21' . Went to the range with loads i intended to use and set up a target 21' away. It tells you pattern size at that distance and where they hit in reference to where you aim. Most loads pattern smaller than you think at that distance. I have buttstocks on my guns,NOT PG's
