Slugs though a full choke?

4 posts in this topic

I used my mossberg 500 with I.C. choke and killed two deer this weekend. But after I got done shooting my ear was killing me because of the ported barell. I have a Benelli SL80 that is fixed full choke that I got from my grandpa. I dont want to wreck the gun. Is it safe to shoot slugs through a full choke? I am using Super X rifled slugs. confused.gif

i heard your supposed to shoot them only through I.C.'s. Otherwise you could ask your local gunsmith over the phone

Do NOT shoot slugs through this gun.

Period.

It may be fine for a while. It may blow up on the first try.

slug guns are cheap.

Shooting slugs through a fixed full choke was quite common 40 years ago but accuracy was horrible. And as already mentioned it would be ill-advised for today's screw in chokes.

You can buy a rifled slug barrel for a Mossberg 500 quite reasonably ($120-140) and they are very accurate to 100+ yards. The ballistics for a 12 ga. sabot bullet are quite impressive. In fact the ballistics for a 20 ga. sabot are comparable to a 30-30 out to 100 yds.

        So no help here it looks like. How did it end up going? Did you find a fix?. Suk's to be stranded.

      How's the snow on the lake?  Can you still get around on snowmobile or is the slush getting bad?  Thanks for any info.

      I don't have an axe to grind with The Landing (and I don't honk anyone on this forum does either)- I went there a few times last summer and the food was good, they had an ample beer selection, and the service was friendly- all of those things I'm willing to pay for.   We had another couple up staying the weekend at our cabin and brought them to The Landing and had a terrific time, looking forward to making it back there again!   And more importantly, can't wait for the ice to get off the lake!!
