What kind of choke should you use when shooting slugs?
I assume that you’ll be shooting a Foster-style slug—one that has rifling. The conventional wisdom has long been that these slugs perform best with an Improved Cylinder choke. Though ammunition is highly variable, and all guns digest ammunition a little differently than one another, I’d be inclined to start with an IC choke.
What kind of choke do you use on a Browning shotgun?
It is recommended to use Cylinder or Imroved Cylinder for home defense. Shotgun chokes used for slugs are usually Cylinder or Imroved Cylinder too. Remember that all chokes are different. You cannot install Remington choke on Mossberg shotgun or Ruger choke on Browning shotgun.
Do you need a slug barrel for a shotgun?
If you want to hunt with slugs, the best thing you can do is get a rifled slug barrel. Of course this means you can no longer shoot shot rounds through it, so it its worthless for home defense. If you aren’t going to put a slug barrel on it, it will work but you’re still not helping yourself. Forget the myth that you dont have to aim shotguns.
When to use cylinder, improved cylinder or rifled choke?
If you want to use slugs and have great accuracy then you’ll use a cylinder, improved cylinder or rifled choke. As for the modified and improved modified chokes for example, they are used for targets 60 to 65 yards away. Those are better for birdshot or buckshot type ammunition.
Is there a shotgun that can shoot all slugs?
If you are using “all” as an infinitive meaning “every” shotgun the answer would be No! Most modern shotguns built after the 1960s until today, the answer would be yes for 98%. Even those with full chokes will be ok but the choke will deform the slug affecting accuracy and leading the choke real quick.
Which is the best choke for a rifle?
Though ammunition is highly variable, and all guns digest ammunition a little differently than one another, I’d be inclined to start with an IC choke. If your accuracy with this choke is acceptable, stick with it. If it doesn’t, experiment with other chokes until you find the one that performs best.
How do you reload slugs in a rifle?
Place the shell in the appropriate crimp starting station and lower the ram. Place the shell in the final crimping station and lower the ram. The slug load is now complete. The above procedure may need slight modification depending upon the make and model of your reloading equipment.
