I shoot a 2-3/4" 20 gauge and it's all the gun I need. I would feel comfortable out to 150-175 yds with a good rest. Unfortunately, which slug is best is an expensive game of trial and error. Mine loves the AccuTips but I shot three different brands to reach that conclusion.

Excatly right. 4 of us that go to Iowa all have super black eagle benelli's. All four bought slug barrels for em and same rings, bases, and scope. Thats where the identical part ends. Every gun shot different. One with only SST, other with a Barnes or a AccuTip. So shoot it and if your the last unhappy with it try some other shells.

Go find ya one of the few older guys that are left that have been running a shooting range for the last 25 or so years, not one of these you pay to roll around in the dirt and shoot, and have seen most anything you can hunt with and ask them about this. If ya pay attention might just learn a few things as far as what the engery from a fired round can do to a firearm if not allowed an avenue of escape. Might learn how much barrel it takes to burn all the powder in a pistol/rifle round and why the same round out of the same make and model but with different barrel lengths has different muzzle engery. Must be a reason why ammo makers make so many different loads especially for for the caliber. Take a look at some slow motion footage of rounds being fired and study on it.

Oh forgot to simplify my post, a lot of the time because a slug round moves much slower than a high power rifle round that by the time the slug has left the barrel the energy from the round fired is starting to affect the shooter. It may be small but it is true. With this being said the longer the barrel the greater the effect and vise versa with a short barrel. Again check out some slow motion and research it. But either way don't much care ain't my gun, just trying to be helpful.
