For something that needs to be 100% dead, 12 ga 3" 1 1/4 oz slug. You hit it, I am willing to bet it won't be getting back up.

After seeing what those do to several frozen hams as compared to .44 mag 240 HP, .308, etc I am a believer.

That being said however, unless your a batchelor and live in a cinder block on brick house like I do, probably not the best load for HD. Not to mention that every time I fire one of them I end up punching myself in the nose. Very brutal recoil, I also can imagine in a dark room tremendous muzzle flash. Also slow to recover from the recoil.

Personally I have my 20" Remington 870 with mag extension loaded with 2 3/4 BB shot and I run a full choke. Had the barrel converted to interchangeable choke. My house is very small, and I imagine in the close confines of my place a full load of BB would be very effective.

I dunno, I would be tempted to stick something with the bayonet. And THEN let loose with the buckshot!

Thanks from nf1e@snet.net and lhobbs

Is that mag tube strong enough for bayonet use?

IMO yes. The barrel band and bayonet band are braised on, and the mag tube cap is quite solid. The distance between the two points of contact are 3inches, I do not believe that it would be a problem for real world use. And as to the other question, it is a cylinder choke, though if for some reason I wanted to there is enough beef in the bbl to install chokes if I wanted to.




Thanks from GARRARD and Thor

Well I have decided on 2 shells now I just need to figure out the brands to use. I’m going to use 00 buck and slugs, so if any of you have recommendations as to what to use it would be greatly appreciated. Right now for the 00 buck I’m looking at Hornady Z-Max or TAP, but for the slugs I’m not sure.

Mine patterns about well, 10-12 inches at 25 yards with regular cheapy Remington 2 3/4" 00buck. Easy to find and the few other brands I tried weren,t all that much more impressive.
Cylinder, but it's a screw in Hastings choke. Plenty enough of recoil. Heavy barrel weight might help some with the recoil but not enough for me to shoot 3" shells and generally I hate shooting at paper targets with shotguns.

My Question to you is How Big and Stout are You ????
How Much of a Beating can you take that the 3" shells will inflict upon you ??? How Much can you Afford ?? 2 3/4" are Cheaper
You see where I am going. Me Myself I prefer 2 3/4" The 3" beat me to Death.

Nice scattergun Phillip26p!
I voted for 2 3/4 shells for the extra round being a short range weapon. I really like these guns, I almost bought one back in the day, I wish I would've.

You DO realise that until I saw your photos I was perfectly content with my 1200 Win. and my old Remington double barrel.

NOW, of course, lust has set in...

590 has been my favorite for HD even though I think the 870 is a better shotgun.

I would say just stay with 2-3/4" shells, 3" you lose capacity and is unecessary punishment.

9 or 12 pellets of OO Buck or even some 8 pellet OOO buck would be great; I love #4 buck also for some reason, 27 or 34 .24" pellets going 1300fps just seems incredible.

I generally keep mine loaded with OO and #4buck alternated with a slug or two at the end/last round.

I much prefer Federal for factory buckshot, their shells are of much better build and by far my favorite. Remington would be my second choice for brand of shells.

Nice scattergun, mine has the bayonet lug also, don't think I will every use it though.

Nice choice. I used one at a former agency. I preferred the placement of the safety and slide release over the 870. Never had either a M590 or an 870 fail to go boom.

Now I want a bayonet for my 590! For rounds I use Winchester PDX for HD. 3 pellets of OO buck with a 1 oz slug.
