I dunno Iíve got a 730 grain mold for the 10 gauge Iíve plunked deer with and a couple more not quite as heavy that have done the deed as well . Used 0000 and 00000 buck in the 10 gauge to take deer . If I can do one in with the 8 gauge quick I might work the little 28 in the rotation just have to decide whether to use Brenneke factory or my home cast slug or #1 #2 or #3 buck .

I ve always thought a 28 ga slug would really work well on a deer...I have some 28 ga slugs in my ammo collection and some factory round balls...got to get me a gun to try them out on deer some day....charlie

Theyíre not that bad . The 2 1/4 ounce shot loads however can be a skoosh stout .

A 730 grain slug equates into about a 1 5/8 ounce load so as you can see the payload is a good bit less than the 2 1/4 ounce load .

it should be a good load to shootmy 8 ga round balls weigh 2 ounceswith 45 grains of bluedot there not to bad to shoot....I have shot a 3 ounce load and 57 grains of bluedot it will kick pretty good..you will usally take a step backwards...not a pleasant load to shoot...charlie

I use pretty much the same charge of Universal Clays for the slugs and punkin balls that I use for 1 1/2 oumces of shot . Not unpleasent , the 1 1/2 ounce shot loads are okay for sporting clays provided the course owner doesn't object to a cannon . I shoot at one place that the county told him nothing larger than 12 gauge period , shot charge etc is unimportant just no larger than 12 .

No it's Central Virginia Sporting Clays in Palmyra VA . When Brad went before the Board of Supervisors in that county some other folks that were kinda against him opening got them to say nothing larger than 12 gauge .

Now get this I can (if I wanted to) shoot a 12 gauge 3" throwing 2 ounces of shot , but my little cream puff 10 gauge 2 7/8" 1 1/8 ounce low pressure loads are breaking the rules .

I'm surprised you get any kind of decent patterns out of buckshot that big. I could never even get satisfied with 000 when I hunted deer with shotguns and hounds.

Last thing I saw shot at with 000 was a coyote at about 35 yards with my old 32" truck double. He was standing still when my son took the shot. I saw buckshot hit the ground on both sides of him, above, and below him. IOW, there was a coyote sized hole in the pattern. Never touched him.

You must not be using any choke at all with the six oughts.
