What Kind of Accuracy from a Mossberg 20 ga with sabot slugs?

What kind of accuracy can I expect from a Mossberg Model 500 20 gauge with 24" bbl and sabot slugs (scope set at 4X). I've never shot a deer past 120 yds and most of them were closer (some far closer).


Thanks,

Crash

I have no experience with a 20 gauge, however, with a 12 gauge and a rifled shotgun barrel, using sabots, you should be able to get 3"-4" groups at 100 yards in my experience.

I picked up one several years ago for my son. Rifled barrel. Hornady sabots within a 4" group, consistently, at 80 yards. Dropped off a bit at 100 but well within the kill zone. Never shot it further than that. First thing (was my second but I learn the hard way) get a recoil pad for it. Bought a limbsaver that, in my opinion, is worth its weight in gold! Love the gun but it kicks like a mule!
