how far wiill a slug kill a deer?

I just wanted to know how far a 12 ga. 2 3/4 rifled slug would be lethal on a deer. Also, what range should I sight in my sights for? Last, has anybody ever had any experience with the hi-viz triangular sight system? Does moving the rear sight fowards and backwards along the rib really change the elevation?

It depends on your comfort level. Mine is about 80 yards for a slug.

For me, a 60 yard shot is about as far as I'm comfortable with. And yes, moving the sights changes where the shot goes. eye roll Move it forward to make the shot go higher, backward...lower.
