Slug choices

For those that have experience with slugs, what is your brand/load of choice.

Have a Mossberg 500 20g with rifled barrel and scope. Gun has killed a few deer with regular Remington or Winchester slugs but looking for a possible better choice to try out.

My stand is in a thick funnel choked with honeysuckle with view of a small plot at 80-100 yards. Targeting mature bucks. Most shots would be 50 yards but definitely want to be able to reach out to the plot.

Hornady SST shells always worked well for me. I have a savage 212 (12gauge) with rifled barrel and they shot well out of it. 100yds was no problem. With a solid rest I felt confident out to 150.
I do alot of hunting with a slug, due to the restrictions where I hunt, so I've shot a lot of different ones. The absolute best performance I have gotten is with the Lightfield slugs. They shoot well, expand great, and have only had one deer ever take more than 1 step after being shot. Look into those
the Remington premier tips are badazz for sure out of the H & R and the Mossberg 20's.
I’ve shot lightfields w 12g and 20 g and they have been great.
