Whats up guys/gals? New guy here...first time postig here and I'd first like to say good luck to everyone this year. Be safe
I was gona post this in the guns and ammo forum but thought that since Ithaca was "Local" for us N'Yorkers, you might have the answer. I bought an Ithace 12 gage pump gun last year from a guy at work. Has the rifled barrel and I was hoping to set it up for stand hunting. I have an 870 for pushes and still hunting. Anyway I bought Remington Copper solids (2-3/4"), Sabot Slugs, but they were so hot they wouldn't eject without really giving me a workout. The casings seem to be expanding and even though they load easy like sluggers in my 870 do, it just doesn't want to come out after a round is fired.
I figured the best thing I could do is buy 3-4 boxes of Sabots from different manufacturers and try them to see what it likes. Got 1 box of Lightfield's now but its tough to find slugs this time of year and at $15/box of 5 I want to pick the right ones.
Do any of you have a Mid-70's Ithaca Deerslayer 12ga. that likes a certain sabot slug?
Thanks to everyone in advance!
