I just bought the barrel w/Bushnell scope combo for $174, delivered to my local Walmart. You can't beat that.
So, what slugs are you shooting?
I hunt alot of open ground and like the Winchester Supremes. Pricey for sure but I seldom think about ammo costs when I am judging the distance and can I make the shot. I killed a yote at 110 yards and my buck was every bit of 80+ facing me, small kill zone. I want to do the yardage, windage, and put the crosshairs where they need to be and not worry.
BTW Mike I have a 12 pack carton full of boxes of slugs Ray gave me. All different brands and styles, come on out with your new toy and lets see what fits best. You need to get get your meat anyway.......bring beer.
How did it do after that?
