Question on slugs

4 posts in this topic

Bought my wife a Benneli 20 ga. for hunting pheasants, she is now going to try deer hunting. I don't want to purchase a rifled barrel in case this is not her thing. So if I buy rifled slugs, what choke should I screw into the muzzle? Thanks for the help!

ah here it comes.....it depends. Try them all. Start with IC, then Mod. Different flavors of rifled slugs may like different chokes. I recommend some type of aiming system other than the bead. you can get rifle sites that clamp on to the vent rib for cheap that will do a pretty good job. Also, try and come up with a gun vise or sighting in bench thing. That will help her immensely during that process and will lessen the odds she gets a little apprehensive about the kick. Slugs have a little more bite.

Fellas,

Thanks for the advice. I think I'll go shooting this Sunday and try a couple different chokes.

      Down visiting in southern WI with family and our neighbors just watched someone go through ice and drown on a small lake near Lake Geneva. Everyone please be careful when checking ice!

      Has anybody gotten a look at area lakes? Any of them locked up yet ? A buddy said he seen a couple guys a little ways out on Bakers Bay and a couple guys on Eagle. Seems a little crazy to me. There can't be much more than an inch or two. Maybe a little more on Eagle since its shallower.
