I'm thinking about buying an SLP to use for my all around gun.I was wondering if anyone could tell me what
kind of accuracy I might expect from this gun with slugs.Like a little more info before I spend $1100.
Thank You

I was just out yesterday shooting slugs with my slp i ran 15 of em through the shotgun. I got the windage down but i was like 1-2 inches high from my bulleyes before i ran out of slugs. I was 50 yards out on a bench rest sitting down but it seemed pretty accurate the last 4 shots were all in a straight line going up.

I used federal low recoil 2 3/4 slugs they come in a orange box tru ball technology. Then I had regular slugs from the federal blue box slugs 2 and 3/4 I think. It eats up basically everything I've put through it besides Winchester white box shells. The top one was the last slug I clicked it up 10 so I clicked it back down 4 times and I assume that should be good enough. I was battling the cold and darkness so I couldn't stay out too long.

What piston are you running with these slugs?

The red one, I have the gold one too. I have never used the gold one on account of shells that require that piston are too expensive.

My SLP came with two gas pistons. The red is the low power and black is a high power. I use the black when firing 3" buckshot or slugs only. I usually only 2 3/4" buckshot or slugs so I use the red piston most of the time. I know the newer SLPs ship with just a single gold piston or has FNH changed again?

I bought my SLP last month and it came with two gold pistons. One is not marked and is for light loads. The other is marked and is for heavy loads.

I may have got the colors mixed up but I think huggie is right I got a light and heavy load but I have never used the heavy. I set aside in my parts draw. I always thought it goes by load size like 1.75 up heavy anything lower. I just plink with it or shoot paper so I just shoot birdshot or number 4 some times buck. I did buy 2 1/4 shot buck by accident that didn't cycle.
