I have a H&R single shot 20ga with a fixed mod choke and just wandered if it would be ok to shoot slugs thru it?
I'm gonna have to try this now with my 20 ga NEF. I was always scared the full choke would cause problems. Good to know!Originally posted by glennasher1
Sure, shotgun slugs are dead soft, pure lead, and they easily squeeze down to fit any choke, even full chokes (although I wouldn't try them in the new turkey chokes!) DO shoot some before season, to see how your gun shoots them, my nephew's H&R shot them 2 feet high, at 20 yards!
Sabots aren't made to shoot out of a smooth barrel, try some of the cheaper Foster type slugs. Usually here in Indiana Wally World 2 or 3 bucks a box. The Sabots are a smaller diameter and bounce in the barrel. The old style slugs are larger and fit the barrel better.Originally posted by sand_manms
I have a 20 ga H&R that I've shot sabots out of. At 25 yards I can keep 4 slugs in a 5" circle if I can hold it steady.
