    I bought a bunch of the 3 inch Black Magic Magnum slugs by Brenneke for bear defense. They kick so hard that my shoulder wants to go numb after 5 shots. I put them through my Mossberg 590 and the recoil causes the action to lock. I have to wiggle it as I pump it to unlock it. Is this normal? Will the 2 3/4 inch shells also do this?

    Is there a better round for bears out there?

    They shoot fine out of my 500. Don't know why it would be different in a 590. I'll be buying 2 3/4" from now on, though; those 3 inchers kick too hard. :wow:

    I'd bet the bear will hit you harder than the slugs!! :supergrin: If I was face to face with a Griz I'd probably wish I had 5" magnums!! :whistling:

    I run them through my 590 no problem, I didn't think there were that many bears in FL?
