    Those are awesome pics. Are they video stills or is someone that good with the shutter button?


    I shot my 500 from the bench yesterday with Winchester Super X, 1oz Sabot slugs, 2 @ 50yd, 3@100, to check POI for deer hunting. OMG. 5 shots was enough. The recoil seemed to be equivalent to a .300 magnum. I've never had a shotgun kick so hard.

    I'm glad one of us (you) had fun.
    When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

    I like shot for the slug where the top of the 2-liter bottle is flying straight up. Nice explosion!

    Shooting slugs and 3 inch mag 00 buck is not my idea of fun. Nice pics though. How bout a pic of the gun?
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    I had my Canon 40D set up on a tripod in burst mode (6.5 fps) and had my girlfriend hold down the shutter button right before I shot.

    And yeah the recoil on those 3" magnums was more than I expected. I have a few small bruises on my shoulder.

    I only shot as many of those as I had to. I wanted to make sure they worked reliably in my gun. The rest of the time I was just shooting the target loads.

    Here's my shotty:
