I tried the Hornaday SST slug this year and found it to be one of the most accurate slugs I have ever shot.

The buckhammers are a great slug and I have used them for a few years now. Last year I (Shotgun zone in NY) used the winchester 3 in. W/ the partition golds. Being a nosler partition fan all of my life I had to give them a try. Was very happy with the results and now have a new fav.

Hey Atom
Good to see you back kicking around. Hadent seen much from you lately and thought you might have ventured off to new pastures?
Yeah I would much rather hunt with one of my rifels also but certin areas in NY (more Southern) are no rifle hunting. So in those areas I break out the Ithica 37 deerslayer and toss big bullets.

ADK good to talk to you again bro. Ya some places up here I think have laws like that but I dont hunt those but when the 12 comes out its the old winnie 1100 pump shes shoots as good as the day I bought it, But she gets a good work out in duck season up here. How you been whats new and no I won't ever leave BGH, To many good guys like you around.
