I am getting my 20 guage ''TAMER'' shortly-the primary use will be a truck gun for potting grouse-but I chose the 20 guage over the 410 because I wanted to shoot slugs,if I chanced on a deer.The Tamer has a 20 ''full choked smooth barrel-what would be the most suitable slug for this gun-what sort of accuracy can I expect,and what is the practical range?

Try them all to see which your gun likes best. I suggest 2 3/4" standard, non-magnum loadings, non sabotted slugs of course. I like the Brenneke's or the Remington sluggers. Some swear by Remington Buckhammers but I have not shot them because of the price AND the Brennekes work great for me....<><....:)

Remington says the BuckHammers are for fully rifled barrels or barrels with a rifled choke tube. I have the Carlson rifled choke tube in 12 ga and have been pleased with the performance. I just got a 20 ga USH barrel that has the rifled barrel. A friend found me a couple boxes of the BuckHammers in 20 ga and I will be trying them in the gun this weekend. Right now Remington has a $5.00/box rebate on them, so that makes them more reasonable.

the 20 guage Tamer has a smooth bore-20"full choke barrel-capable of 3'' shells so I'm just wondering what would be the best slug -does it make much difference having a 20'' barrel than a 30'' barrel in terms of velocity?What length of barrel is required to produce the most useful velocity?
