I wanted to share with you how happy I am with your shotgun SST slugs. On December 5th, 2009 I was hunting in Perry County, Illinois, in their second shotgun season. I had a monster Whitetail buck chase a doe out into the field and I had about three seconds to make a decision on whether or not to shoot. The deer was at approximately 155 yards when I decided to shoot. My first shot connected right in the kill zone and then the deer ran closer to me to about 130 yards and I shot him two more times. After the third shot the deer only made it about another 50 yards where he died upon hitting the ground. Little did I know that this deer was a once in ten lifetimes deer. He gross scored at 220 5/8 B&C. I honestly feel like without my Hornady slugs this deer would still be lurking in the woods. Thanks for making such a consistent shell that I will count on for the rest of my life. Needless to say, everybody I speak to about my ha! rvest, I tell them that without Hornady shells and my Browning shotgun, this harvest wouldn't have been possible.
