    the websites of both Federal and Remington have ballistics tables available online, as well as other manufacturers of slugs too. these tables can give you the exact info you seek.

    Just about all the slugs are going to have plenty of power, what you need to find is which one your gun likes. You need to get several different kinds and shoot them, then stick with the most accurate one. You can take two identical guns and they may each shoot a different shell best. Seen this many, many times with rifles, but slug guns can be even more picky about which shell they shoot well. No way to find it out except shoot as many different brands as you can to find out the one your 870 likes. You can't go by what the magazine adds say or what your buddy's gun likes, those are just starting places, you got'a shoot'em through your gun and see. Good luck.

    What they said. Look at the tables and get an idea of the shells youd like to try. Then youll have to go out and put some rounds down range. Good Luck.

    Hornady has a pretty good slug that you might want to look at too!
