Remember, if you live in a in a shotgun slug only durr hunting state, there is no reason to buy a stand alone 12 gauge slug gun. If you have a 12 gauge and buy a rifled slug barrel or you buy a 12 gauge that has a rifled slug barrel but plan on getting a second barrel and having one receiver do multiple things that is but a 12 gauge hunting slug and 20 gauge hunting slug both have the same fricking ballistic characteristics and effective range and there is pretty much no scenario where a 12 gauge slug would kill where a 20 gauge slug would fail

      go loop up the numbers, both have the same drop chart, both have the same max effective range, a 20 gauge hole will kill a durr. you end up with a lighter gun, the only negative is the recoil might be higher with a light gun, but its a gun you carry all day and only shoot once or twice

        I vaguely recall Massad Ayoob saying 20gauge was underrated, but that was ages ago.

          I'm not even saying its >underrated. I am saying in this specific application there is literally no benefit to using a 12 gauge hunting slug over a 20 gauge one. there isn't enough distance ballistically to make a difference. the thing you would decide on would be gun weight, felt recoil, and price/availability of the gun and ammo. in terms of the effect on a deer short of something like actual lottery odds there is no way a 12 gauge slug would kill a deer but a 20 gauge would fail to

            Yes, clearly. But what point are you even trying to make? That hunters should buy a 20ga slug gun instead of just shooting slugs through their 12ga smoothbore or getting a slug barrel for their 12ga? That seems counterproductive since a whole new gun is more costly than just buying a barrel, and 20ga slugs are both more expensive and harder to find than 12ga.

      a dedicated slug gun can go out to 200 yards

      the argument is if you are buying a dedicated gun buy the 20 gauge. if you are just buying a barrel for your already owned gun its whatever

          Nobody is buying a slug barrel for its versatility being able to shoot a larger variety of slugs particularly sabots accurately is cool

            Right but why even bother with the slug barrel or the sabots when the rifled slugs do what i need the slug gun to do more than adequately

    Very cool opinion OP, now that you cleared that up I'll point out that 12 gauge slugs are 1/3 the cost of 20 gauge slugs and on that alone with the rest of your input there is no reason to buy a 20.

        I only shoot slugs because that's what my local ranges allow. The only other place to shoot shotguns besides indoor ranges (and the only one that allows bird/buck) is one ran by the forest service 1.5 hours away and that is closed to the public from spring to fall.

          if you are shooting at a range you wouldnt be using hunting sabot slugs anyway. also seems dumb to me to go to a range specifically to shoot shotgun slugs. what is the point of owning a shotgun if that is all you do with it?

            I have it for HD but practice at the range with slugs because that's what's allowed at the ranges around me.

            I know this is difficult for people not from the area to grasp but that's the absolute state of Eastern VA. Might try taking it hunting this fall but that'd almost as depressing as the shooting range situation which is why I don't go.

    You could make the same argument for 410 which would be bullshit

      you can't, because 410 doesn't have the same flight characteristics as 20 gauge and 12 gauge.

        12ga slugs nearly always make sense because they're by far the cheapest and the most readily available.

          12ga ammo is cheaper, more abundant and more diverse for any given shot type. If I already own one 12ga why start fricking with another gauge to save like an ounce? Who the frick is taking a slug gun for backcountry hunting in rough terrain? Don't all you midwest gays hunt farms and woods?

        you do know that you dont need a slug barrel to shoot slugs right?
        and that rifled slugs dont benefit from rifled barrels.
        the main reason you get a slug barrel is the rail built into it to mount a scope to or it has rifle sights on it

          slug barrels are for shooting sabot slugs, not rifled slugs. sabot slugs have longer range

      That's the thing. I can totally see wanting a lightweight shotty if you're, say, hunting upland game where you're doing a ton of walking around. Then there's absolutely an argument to be made for a light gun, but it has frick all to do with slugs, and I'd be looking real hard at 28ga.

    There's no reason to buy a rifled slug barrel anyway. It's a scam.

    It all depends on the type of slug you're using. You don't need rifling for Polev or Brenneke slugs, you don't need rifling for Gualandi slugs either.
    >there is pretty much no scenario where a 12 gauge slug would kill where a 20 gauge slug would fail
    Can 20 gauge shotgun shoot slugs heavier than 1 oz?
