Mossberg 590

Has anyone tried slugs out of their 590 and if so how was the accuracy?

Don't have a 590, but hitting a B27 target in the chest area, with slugs with my 870 is easy.

A 590 could easily do the same.

Not a 590 but a 500 with 20" barrel and 7 shot mag. With Remington 2.75" 1oz slugs it shot 2" five shot groups (basically one big hole) at 25 yards with mag tube resting on sandbags. At 50 yards a bit larger group but they were still touching each other.

Btw, after about 15 shots my shoulder had enough...lol

Any smoothbore shotgun will do minute of deer accuracy out to abou 100 yards depending on the slug used.

With a bead sight at 50 yards you should be able to manage 4" groups. I've killed deer with slugs at 70 yards with bead sighted shotguns but that's pushing the envelope as the bead lacks accuracy at distance. I'm good with a set of ghost rings and a Foster or Brenneke slug out of my 590A1 out to about 125 yards.

As with any shotgun you need to shoot groups with both buckshot and slugs and see how the gun patterns. I've not found a nickles worth of difference with most foster style slugs out to 25 yards or so. Beyond that you might see that the gun shoots one brand better than the other. Or you might not. Only way to tell is to put lead downrange ON PAPER...

yeah smoke on the water. during my police academy range firearms module, we shot slugs. Its been many years and i dont recall how much the slugs weighed, but my 590 had the ghost ring sight, and during a multiple target run and shoot drill, it was deadly accurate, from 7 yds out to 50yds. i sold that baby a few years ago and i miss her. just my $0.02.

I have three slugs in my HD Mossberg 500. I have 100% confidence in them.

Ghost rings should get the job done out to 100 yards and maybe a little beyond if you do your part
