It looks like I could put my mouth on the base of the accutip that went into the bison and blow into it and it would pop back up and be ready for another shot. Yep. Not as advertised.Slugs have been legal in Wyoming for a long time but few use them. Wyoming has a special shotgun/muzzy-only hunt area for bison and elk. The butcher that took care of my bison gave me these slugs he dug out of a elk and a bison that were harvested in that special hunt area:
I don't know any details i.e. distance or where and how the animals were hit with the slugs.
They didn't open up much; not as advertised anyway:
True, but in all fairness to Remington, and like I said, I don't know the circumstances of the kill. The guy could have been 400 yards away, I don't know.It looks like I could put my mouth on the base of the accutip that went into the bison and blow into it and it would pop back up and be ready for another shot.

Yeah, I might do that, maybe shoot an Illinois whitetail and see how they do. Although I'm pretty happy with the slugs I'm using now, Remington Premier Copper Solids:Maybe you should buy some accutip slugs and use them on one of those umpteen Wyoming big game licenses you get each year so we can see for ourselves, Goob.:mrgreen:
I have a couple dedicated slug guns; one rifled and another smooth bore. I can easily swap out the slug barrel for an upland game/waterfowl barrel if I want to.I think it'd be cool to have a dedicated slug gun - although I don't see too much difference between that and a muzzleloader. VA has a shotgun deer hunt for a few weeks later in the season - I may give it a go at the end of the year.
Got some Ultras to try out. Check out the ballistics of the Remington Ultras compared to the Copper Solids I've been using:...................................
...................................I really want to try the Core-Lokt Ultra Bonded Sabots next; flatter shooting with more (relative) down range energy.
There's a bunch of fast shooting and efficient shotgun slugs out there these days. I don't stay up on them like I use to.
