Bore sight then... Slugs, buck, whatthefuck?
You don't even have to aim a shotgun...It obliterates anything in the general direction that you are pointing.
Everyone knows that.
Not to mention just the sound of racking a round will more than likely scare your target away, even if it's made of paper.
If it has adjustable sights then sight it with slugs. Pattern it with buckshot to determine relative POI, which should be pretty damn close at buckshot range.
Mine just has a bead and smooth bore... I patterned my HD buckshot at 7 and 25 yards. I can keep slugs on a paper plate at 100 yards.
It's a saiga 12.
K, gotta buy some cheap slugs then. It will be my HD weapon, and maybe some clays.
Slugs for HD? 00 buck here.
I think hes saying to buy slugs for sighting in, jesus
And nothing completely wrong with slugs either. Oh wait are you gonna tell me buckshot wont over penetrate either now?
What type of sights on the shotgun? Choke tubes or fixed?
I like to start by sighting in for slugs at 50 yards. It helps is you have some sort of adjustable sight. Bead sight only (or the more popular fiber optic front only) is the fastest for moving targets such as flying clays or wing shooting. Not the greatest for slugs. Rifle sights are pretty good, but slower. Ghost rings are kind of a preference thing compared to rifle sights. They seem to block too much for moving targets for me. I myself like the red dot sight.
For chokes and slugs most popular is some sort of IC or mod. You have to test your choke to make sure it shoots point of aim with your slugs. Three different chokes of same manufacture and constriction can have different points of impact.
Regarding bead sight only smooth bore keeping slugs on a paper plate at 100 I'm calling bullshit on that. It can definately be done by a very good slug shooter like Taran Butler it is definately not easy to do. Slugs have really poor BC and really get pushed around by wind, have tons of drop, and your really got to be perfect on a bead front only. It's one of those internet things. On the net everyone is making 100 yard slug shots. At the range seasoned shooters are getting embarrassed on steel at 100.
One of my squad mates got a ruger 10/22 rear sight milled into the rib of his shotgun barrel. Now he can flip it up for slug shots or keep it down for bird shot. Pretty cool.
I'm talking about the target, not the weapon. A paper target running away at the sound of a shotgun being racked?
And he mentions that it's a Saiga 12 because it can't be racked ... it's not a pump action.
There are practical applications where slugs are totally acceptable for HD.
not to mention shot spread at typical room distances isn't going to be much bigger than the diameter of a slug anyway.
Keep in mind that Admitted is planning on using this converted S12 to shoot skeet and trap.
I'm sure as fuck not saying I can do it on demand in competition, or even off hand for that matter.
In the context of "sighting in"...calm day, at a bench, shooting off sand bags, and after working up from 25 & 50 yards, on a 9" paper plate with Brennekes... I don't think its that improbable to call BS on. Don't know what to tell you
Fuck yeah. At least this first time.
I went with a burris fastfire II and a non-slotted poly-choke II. Some saiga guys off of saiga 12 forum have had better luck on full X choke than with regular full turkey chokes for steel matches.
I want to give the fuckers at the range a heart attack. And why not?
This vid shows you how to sight in a shotty.
Oh, well I guess I'm the jackass then.
this is why the one under my bed has one in the chamber i dont want to scare anyone before they see me
