H and R Ultra Slug

Recommended Posts

I've researched and read pretty much any website out there about this gun.

 

I finally order one and it should be in Friday. I paid 375 for the gun. It is the 20g laminated thumbhole stock. I also purchased a Nikon Slug hunter scope.

 

A few questions I have, that I couldn't really get from other websites.

 

I understand every gun is different but it seems that Remington accutips are the best ammo for this gun? I'd like to know what you guys use.

 

Next is scope ring. I'm really liking the DNZ rings. Anyone use these or can suggest others?

 

Thanks

At first I shot the Hornady SST 2-3/4" with very good results, this summer I tried the Remington accutip 3" with better results. DNZ mounts are great I have them on my savage 220f

Jim,

 

You are going to LOVE that gun! The H&R is a tack driver at a crazy good pricepoint! The only downside is the weight, but for stand or ground hunting, it's awesome!

i have the same gun with the same scope. out to 150yds the SSTs grouped 2 1/2" the 2 3/4 accutips were under 2" lightfields were good to 100yds but then they would drop and would get a few flyers. winchester supremes were good too but didnt shoot them past 100yds

yes the hasting special one I just want one I feel the gun was ahead of its time and some major company down the road will re introduce the 3-5 20 gauge

My gun liked both the 2 3/4" winchester partition golds or the lightfields.

I've head two of them. One shot Lightfields best and one shot Accutips best. Tack drivers once you find the right load! Good luck.

Just finished at the range. Followed the NIkon "spot on" ballistics and all I can say is wow!

 

100 yard group could be covered by a golf ball, all were touching.

 

200 yards about a 6-7" group. Probably me shaking and the scope cranked up

 

 

It love the 2 3/4" accutips!

 

I am very please. It was 390$ for the gun(including tax and NICS), 45$ for DNZ rings/rail, and 150$ for the Nikon prostaff shotgun slugger 2x7 BDC.

Best money I've spent on a gun. Very pleased

20 gauge 003.JPG I sighted in 2 inches high at 50 yrds with the lightfields. I really don't know what they do past 100 yds.

I know this is a little old but I feel as if this load was kind of unnecessary. If you wanted this type of magnum load why wouldn't you just use a 12 ga. instead? Never quite understood the 3.5" 20 ga for this reason.

Mine likes the lightfields but I've never shot the accutips out of it so I may try them out since I've been hearing so many good reviews about them. I love my H&R and I'm sure you'll enjoy yours too. Good luck with it.

Dan, why the 3.5" 20ga.? you would equal a 12ga., also 3.5" 20ga. ammo isn't easy to find
