    Default Stakeout and slugs?

    Hi folks,

    Been experimenting with standard Foster slugs in my 14" knock off Stakeout. They do ok, but I was wondering if anyone had done any testing with Brenneke style and if they got better range. I don't plan to make this a carry load, but figure I'll have a few in a carry pouch. (I had quite a few of the Fosters from deer season.). I'm going to grab a box of Brennekes next trip to the store for my own tests, but thought I'd ask.

    We have shot slugs slugs at distances out to 100 yards and made hits. I don’t recall the load but they were nothing exotic.

    I would be curious to hear your experience with those slugs.

    For my part, I am satisfied with a slug that hits where I aim it.

    That seems to be a fairly solid point of satisfaction. After that, it's the slug's job.

    Hmm... This is something I need to do more of. If only because I haven't really done much of it. Also I am sure it would tick off the fudds at my club lol.

    Exactly. It’s not that I am not interested in terminal performance, but that’s really out of my control. My #1 criteria is can I hit with it consistently.

    If a slug has some interesting characteristics I might look at it, but it’s not something I have devoted any time to looking at.

    Brent, We were using the Federal Tactical Reduced Recoil Slugs (Blue Hull). It is a pretty standard load for LE and is easy to source just about anywhere at reasonable cost. My experience with an SI Amphibian is that they will shoot into a 9” Circle using slug sights and a sling for support. I expect a bit better once I try grouping again with the RMR on the weapon.
    “How can I shoot people? Shooting people is easy. It is the simple application of the fundamentals of marksmanship. The hard part is ensuring that I have the physical strength to prevail, the moral strength to know when it is right to kill, and the mental strength to articulate the aftermath such that I maintain my freedom while they experience what comes next in the afterlife.”

    I have also tested with Brenekke but not beyond a 50 yard range. I found them to be stoked very hot but seemed accurate with minimal drop within 50. My gut is they would drop less than the traditional Foster slug.

    I was hitting a 12" gong at 75 yards with the Fosters, and yes, I wouldn't volunteer to try and catch one. Brennekes are a tad pricier, compared to these Federals. (Std velocity, green hulls). I was wondering if the juice was worth the squeeze, that's all.
