Shotgun Performance

I have bought a new 870 Express ,20", fully rifled barrel for the upcoming Ohio gun season. I plan to install a 1x Red Dot sight. I would like suggestions on ammo and also what distances and shot groups can I realistically expect. I use a .270 here in Ky. so I am new to slug gun shooting. Thanks in advance. Chuck <><

As a Ohio hunter and a Reminton shooter
The best slug so far has been Federal premium sabot

Distance 75 yards then check your 50 yard then 100 yard
I shoot a 2 to 3 in group at 50 yard's off handed no bench open sight
Your gun must be pluged to hold 3 slug's only state law
I hunt thick bad stuff 50 yard's is long shot for us
