Default Slugs for Pardner

I used the remainder of the Winchester slugs that i had and put a box (wish i bought more today) of Brennke KO 's . I've read post that this one or that one shot better , well my Pardner likes the brennke's a lot , at 50 yds 4 shots in a 5in group with just the bead impressed the heck outta me, (an awfull lot of luck i am sure) i think i found the slug when one is needed, and the sweet thing is the local dicks sporting has them on sale for a$1.97, so i will be stocking up on these bad boys.............

What choke do you have in the pardner? Im curious as I just ordered a pardner in a 12 gauge so I can shoot slugs, buck and shot. Ive seen posts all over this forum about what you can and can't shoot.... ;D

The Brenneke's are great, they are accurate and really hit like a sledgehammer. You got a great price on them, I have to check a Dick's next time I get by one, congratulations. These smoothbore Handi's are the best deer harvesting guns made for the money if you are shooting within 75 yards or so. If you get a chance send your gun in and get either a 12 or 20 gauge Tracker I barrel with rifle sights while they still have some left, they are only a little over $50 plus fitting and shipping, and I'll bet they shoot almost as well as those crappy overbored .44 barrels they keep trying to sell to us....<><....

I love the brennekes and stocked up last time Dicks had them on sale for 1.83.

The best I was able to do with a bead was 3.5" at 50 yds. Definitely accurate enough for an offhand shot.

I was able to get these results with an ic and a mod screw in chokes. There really wasnt much difference.

well done lotus, that translates into about a 5" group at 75 yards and a 7" group at 100 yards, smoothbore, a shotgun bead sight, offhand, $1.83 a box of 5, whats not to like, and the gun is light and handy to carry. Imagine if you had real iron sights, or a red dot, or a scope! To tell you the truth though, I would not argue with your success, congratulations!!!....<><....

MSP mine is as you said a smoothbore 3" mod choke right off the shelf. i am very pleased after being away from the sport for so many years to come back to h&r/nef. the pardner is such a neet little shotgun. oh yeah the slipon recoil pad makes such big difference, my next project( i think ) are the studs for a sling . Is there any trick to installing other a small pilot hole for the screws ? anyone who has done this themselves how far back from front of forestock should stud go ? I dont want to take chance of cracking the wood ....

longjohn, which do you have an older schnabel style forearm or the newer straighter one? If you can wait a fw hours I will check the measurements and post them for you, both on the forearm and on the buttstock, at least where the factory puts them. Besides not wanting to split the wood you want to get them on square to the centerline of the stock and not cocked sideways, be sure you drill the pilot hole straight from both directions and a right angles to the wood at the location of the hole so when the stud bottoms up against the stock it all looks square....<><....

I found out years ago that no matter where you put the sling stud on a single barrel forearm it will sooner or later catch the web of your hand during firing and that hurts.I mount mine at about a 45 degree angle on the very front edge of the forearm.They are out of the way of your hand at that point and it really looks good.In 30 years I've never had one split on me from putting them in this location.

The more I listen,the more I hear....and vice versa.

45/70..it's almost a religion.

If you have to take a second shot then you probably shouldn't have taken the first one.
