    Greetings Taylor, what was your loading setup for the above three, they look very promising.
    The full bore did the best followed by the Lee .58.
    Keep it up and can't wait to hear more.
    Thanks for sharing.

ID:	243439 I was testing lubes on this one. 20 rounds, as you can see, it didn't like my pistol lube, I settled on powder coat (Smoke 4320) on the 20 ga too.

    I played with 3 different slug combinations, these were the best. Even the factory ammo didn't impress me. But the worst was the wad from Slugs r us. I split some and made a little better difference. Used a Lee 430-310 on those.

    The targets right and left are the same load. One is at 50 yards, the other at 100...2 are touching,pulled one.

    The base on those Slugs R Us sabot's doe not hold up to any slug. They look like they shoot real good with their special slug mold. In a 20 gauge, I would definitely be looking into the full bore slugs, and it looks like you've got a good one.

    Sweet! I bought a stainless 220 a few years back to Iowa deer hunt with. It shot about 2 3/4” to 3” 100 yard groups on average with factory slugs. I then acraglass bedded it and retested. I saved my 100 yard targets. My worst group was 1.75” with five or six different tested saboted slug brands and the best 100 yard group was with 3” accutips that made one big tear in the paper that measured 3/4”. Bought a case of them after that. They are very accurate slug guns. That accutip drops deer in their tracks. Never shot it after that and it’s been a safe queen ever since.
