Brenneke Slugs are made to the highest standards, with the top in engineering,
aerodynamics, ballistics, and you-bet-your-hunt-on-it dependability and accuracy.
Brenneke Slugs can take on some of the most dangerous game the world has to
offer: bear, boar, lion, tiger, leopard, or even cape buffalo.
I have a mossburg 500 pump shotgun with a smooth bore. I use these brenneke slugs for deer hunting. I have my gun & scope sited in with these shells. I can keep a 3in pattern at 100yrs using a smooth bore barrel. I have such success that I an not thinking of getting a slug barrel for my gun. I have tested other slugs and never have had this great success. I only use the Brenneke 3in slugs. Best performance at fair price for what you get. - D. K.
This is for the reviewer who fired these slugs from an H&R singleshot. I fired these slugs from the same firearm and had the same results as you. Then I loosened the screw located on the forend and the problem was corrected. If that screw is tightened all the way, it puts too much tension on the barrel causing the slugs to impact low(every brand of slugs impacted between 6\"-8\" low, not just Brennekes) . If you release that tension, the point of impact rises. I had this same problem with my Rossi singleshots in 20 and 12 gauge as well. Now point of aim and point of impact are the same with all my singleshots(give or take an inch). The Brenneke 20 gauge slugs are excellent. Groups are tight and penetration is superior to most other brands. If you hunt with a smooth bore in 20 gauge, there is no better choice. - J. H.
to answer the question about the discrepancy between slug speed and energy: they are both CORRECT. The energy specified refers to kinetoc energy which is determined by multiplying the value of the mass times the square of the velocity divided by 2 (MV^2)/2. The mass of 1 onz slug is 1/(16x32.2). The rest is arithmentic. - D. P.
These, by far, are the best 20 gauge slugs I've ever used. I've tried several different brands and the Brenneke slugs shoot true and pack a nice punch with the 1 oz slug. With these you don't need a 12 gauge to bring down your deer, the 20 gauge works just fine. - R. R.
This is a great smooth bore shotgun slug, and accurate!!! Dropped a doe in her tracks at 110 yards with open sights with a Remington 870 express. I highly recommend this product for the accuracy and price!!! - T. W.
