    keep a few boxes of 3''magnum 00 buck on hand for my rem 870

  3. i use them for turkey hunting but they are a bit tough to be letting my wife defend herself with. i actually shot a round of clays with 3" #4 shotshells back when i was younger. not sure i could do that today without hurting quite a bit.

    When I feel masochistic I'll go to the range and shoot 50 of these bad boys.

    12 Gauge Remington Buckhammer, 3", 1-3/8 oz. Lead Slugs. :wow:

    I was amazed with that amount of flash I got out of the barrel when I switched, makes the 7 1/2 shot federals feel real light after, think the mossberg 500 can handle firing these 3" magnums???
  6. They are fun to shoot. Probably not the best for HD however. I like the Winchester Super X variety.

    I've used 3 inch sabot slugs to take a couple of whitetail deer with my 590, and I use 3 inch turkey loads for turkey hunting with an external Xtra full choke tube.

    Other than the price (after rebates) I have NO IDEA as to why I bought an 870 SuperMag!!!!

    I mean, it was less than $150.00 (after all rebates), but, I have no intention of shooting 3-1/2" magnums.:wow:
    Oh, and it's never been taken out of the box!

    My 1100 Magnum w/ the old 3" (1-7/8 oz.) #2 copperplate loads weren't too bad.
  9. i keep thinking the same thing. my mossberg 535 is a 3.5" and i was told it would interchange barrels with the 500 but that was wrong. oh well. i figure if its built for 3.5" shells, it should handle a steady diet of 3"
