Want a cantlever rifled slug barrel for Remington 1100

9 posts in this topic

I seen Cabela's ad with a rifled 22" cantlever with a Remington scope for $219 but when I called all they had was 870 barrels left. Found Remington barrel at Walmart for $249 but they had to order,Hasting barrel for $300 with warning not to shoot brass slugs, $369 Remington barrel at Gander Mtn.

New or used doesn't matter and I am in no rush. Any one know where I can find one for a good price. Are there other brand rifled slug barrels that fit on a Remington 1100 and do they shoot good? I want a scope on my deer gun. Thank you.

gander mtn will probably have 1 and they will match cabelas price. I'm gussing your talking about the remington copper slugs even the rem barrels say not to shoot them? I havn't figured that out myself rem. slugs, rem. barrel dont work together?

The older I get the more mistakes I make. Thanks for the correction. Brass... copper...Tink

Why can't they be shot in these rifled slug barrels? I though that is what they were designed for.

I just checked the box and the info sheet that my Remington rifled slug barrel came with and it doesn't say anything about not using copper slugs. As a matter of fact they recommended using the Remington premier copper slugs for the best performance.

I got my barrel at Mills for $129. (not cantilever)

I have a Mossberg fully rifled barrel on my Remington and it shoots real well. That's an 870 but I think they make an 1100 too. Make sure you put a shotgun scope on it too, they are made to take the recoil... A cheap riflescope won't handle it.

Ditto on the scope comment. If you plan to shoot any of the 1900 to 2000 FPS sabots, I would go to a 24" barrel with as fast as twist as you can get. Cabelas' website sells a new barrel from American Barrel that is a 1:26 twist for $189. The problem is that they are backordered for several months. You need the tighter twist and length to stabilize those slugs at 100 yards or more. I had an 870 with a Hastings 1:35 twist that couldn't group the fast slugs at 100 yards. I bought a Benelli Nova with a 1:28 twist and I get 4" groups at 100 yards with the Hornady SST's. I killed a deer with this gun last weekend. With that barrel and a scope, you will have a 200 yard effective killing range. If you don't plan to shoot over 100 yards, the other barrels will work fine. I just like the option of shooting farther should I need it. I hope this helps.

My 870 with Hastings rifled seems to do alright with the Win Partition Golds, but shooting them makes one a glutton for punishment. smile.gif

I've been eyeballing those new American barrels, but thinking instead just to go with one of the single-shot 20ga for the stand, and use either the Rem 870 or Moss 500 with front Firesite and rear ghost ring along with plain old pumpkin balls for the drives...

Back to the topic for the OP.... if you don't need it right away, I'd probably get in line for that American barrel if you are set on using the 1100.

When you say copper slugs, are talking about sabots? I have a an 870 with a rifled slug barrel and all I shoot though it is remington sabots.

Yes, the Remington CopperSolids were not recommended to use in some barrels. I've never heard why, but it seems I read something that the early CopperSolids were different than the ones they make now and what ever it was, is not an issue any more. Consider that a rumor because I have not been able to find the information I thought had read.

      Thanks for the info!!! Will be up there on 10/5-10/8, have been looking at the weather and I hope they are wrong because looks like rain... Have you ever tried fishing out on pike island area? Brother inlaw drove down there this summer and said there were quiet a few people fishing there.

    • Minnesota motorists can support conservation with a new critical habitat plate featuring a wild turkey.
      The new plate displays a colorful tom turkey and is the ninth critical habitat plate offered. Other plates display a moose, loon, pheasant, chickadee, showy lady’s slipper, a fishing scene and two with white-tailed deer. There is also a specialty license plate for state parks and trails.

      “Wild turkey restoration in Minnesota is one of our great conservation success stories,” said Kim Hennings, wildlife land acquisition coordinator. “The critical habitat plates are a great way for motorists to show their interest and support for Minnesota’s fish and wildlife resources.”

      Wild turkeys are native to southeastern Minnesota, but disappeared by 1880 because of habitat loss and unregulated hunting. Successful reintroduction efforts starting in the 1970s led to turkeys now living over a wide range of Minnesota.

      “The wild turkey critical habitat plate has been long awaited for by our membership in Minnesota and turkey hunting enthusiasts,” said Tom Glines, National Wild Turkey Federation regional director. “We love the wild turkey resource and want to do everything we can do to keep wild turkey populations healthy and thriving.”

      The Minnesota Legislature created the critical habitat license plate program in 1995 to provide additional opportunity for Minnesotans to contribute toward conservation. Motorists who purchase a critical habitat plate pay a $10 initial fee, plus a minimum annual contribution of $30 to the Reinvest in Minnesota (RIM) program. Every dollar generated through the sale of the license plate is matched with private donations of cash or land. The annual $30 contribution is not tax deductible.

      Critical habitat license plate revenue has generated more than $59 million to acquire or improve 22,000 acres of critical habitat and helped fund non-game wildlife research and surveys, habitat enhancement and educational programs. Information about the program and details about how to order plates are available on the DNR website at www.mndnr.gov/plates.

      The new license plates are now available at deputy registrar offices statewide. For questions about ordering critical habitat license plates, call the Department of Public Safety-Driver and Vehicle Services at 612-297-3166.

    • The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources recently honored two youths for their outstanding conservation efforts during a ceremony at the 2016 Minnesota State Fair.

      Eliza Sankovitz from Waseca in Waseca County received the 4-H award and Melissa Schilling from Frazee in Becker County received the Future Farmers of America (FFA) award.

      The DNR Commissioner’s Youth Awards are given annually to an FFA student and 4-H member who have demonstrated initiative, leadership, creativity and achievement in conservation and wise use of natural and agricultural resources. This is the 25th year of the award program.

      Curious about the quality of the water in Clear Lake, Eliza Sankovitz asked the question, “What pollutants might be entering the lake?” This was the beginning of Sankovitz’s 4-H project titled “How Clear is Clear Lake.” Sankovitz found three locations around Clear Lake and took water samples after rain events. She then tested the water samples for bacteria, nitrates, chlorine, lead and pesticides. Sankovitz said she did find some pollutants entering the lake.

      Sankovitz is the daughter of Tom and Gretchen Sankovitz.

      Schilling grew up on a farm in rural Becker County. As a member of her FFA Fish and Wildlife Management team, she placed as top individual multiple times at regional competitions. Schilling also placed first in her area and third at state in the Minnesota Senior Envirothon.

      As a member of the Youth Conservation Corps, Schilling worked at the Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge. While on the job, she assisted with prairie restoration, bird surveys, goose banding, invasive species control and refuge facility maintenance. Schilling is currently enrolled at the University of Minnesota Crookston, and is pursuing a degree in wildlife management.

      Schilling is the daughter of Charles and Regina Schilling.

      I am sure Johnny P is all booked up on weekends by now and for some reason some of the guys don't like sleeper houses all though I may push for it this year last year was such a hassle packing everything up for the night loading the trucks having to bring sleds and wheelers. I much rather bring my flasher couple rods and lots of beer. I go fishing enough running and gunning its nice to have a break where you just show up and fish.

      Yes, he probably is.  I book with him early.  I think that he offers guide service in December up until he opens the sleepers up.  Might align with your portables.

    • I was on Namakan yesterday and kept 4 eyes 14" to 15" caught in under 20' of water. Water temp is 60. I was rigging with a half crawler. However, I had friends out using jigs and minnows in 40+ ft and they did well. He said he found a school and using his I Pilot just hovered over the top of them. So it seems the fish are scattered and all methods are working.

      I hope this weekend is better than last!!  I know there is a  lot of ducks around but they have so many places to hide.

    • If you want to stay away from the crowd I would suggest Beacon Harbor I think after jan 1st they don't allow day passes its only beacon harbor and outdoor authority who have houses there. Then they allow only a limited amount of yearly passes.

      Now they don't have all the bells and whistles like a bar and food ect but John and Ann are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. Not to mention I personally think it is some of the best.

       

      Now if you needed a bar and food and all that my choices would be Rogers or Westwind

      Today was the complete opposite of yesterday. The current coming out of light house gap made a pocket of clear water out in the lake overnight, fished right on the edge of the muddy water in 14 feet of water and went through 3 bags of frozen shiners and caught a bunch on plastics after the minnows were gone. Nothing fantastic for size, only 3 in the slot but nice limits of 14-17 inchers and a ton of smaller fish. Once that muddy water gets blown out or clears up the bite is going to be crazy good!
