    a decent slug gun with a rifled barrel Like a savage bolt gun, equipped with a good 2.5x scope can usually produce 3" or smaller 100 yard 3 shot groups

    THIS SAVAGE IS AN EXCELLENT GUN
    these bolt action shotguns have rifled bore designed to stabilize slugs

    if your restricted to shotgun only areas , your not in as bad shapes as you might at first think!
    these rifled slug guns do a really good job on deer out to about 140 yards
    my late uncle, used his savage slug gun to kill several large black bears, and while the average range was under 75 yards he stated it slammed them so hard they rarely did more than spin, fall and twitch

    keep in mind these slugs are loaded inside a plastic shot-cup,
    that compresses and grips the slug, and rifling, in the shotguns bore,
    (if its a rifled bore designed for slugs)
    as its forced down the bore, the slug itself never touches the shotgun bores rifling , which acts as a sabot thats discarded as it leaves the bore.
    you can buy a mold and cast your own at a considerable cost savings if you reload.
