I was just wanting to know what the drop on a 1 oz 12 gauge slug would be at about 45 yards.

I sight in my Rem.870 for 75yds so it actually hits about 2" high at 50yds. Drop at 100yds is then about 5".

According to Remington; the 1oz. "Slugger" high velocity load (not the reduced recoil that I use-more accurate) the drop from "Zero" at the muzzle is 2.19"

You MUST shoot YOUR gun to see where IT actually hits, however.

Keep in mind that it's going (a bit) faster than a standard .22LR.

What are you sighting in at?
2.75 or 3 inch?

I zero my slug gun at 75 yards with 2.75" standard remington Foster style slugs. Out of a 20" barreled 870 I am slighly high at 50 yards and slightly low at 100. At 150 am about 3" low.

To clarify what was meant by my post (# 3).Unless you're shooting "the rear out of a gnat", the drop of a slug at 45 yds, is negligible ,if not moot.
