NO,NO,NO,NO do not chance it, I blew a 20 gauge barrel up that had a poly-choke
I would Google PolyChoke and ask them. I think it is o.k. with the choke set on IC or Cylinder, but ask them first.

It can be done... but you take the risk of expanding the choked part of the barrel or, even worse building excessive pressure in the barrel. It is absolutely not recommended, but your question asks "can you?".

Yes. There is a table on the Poly-Choke site that may be of help: http://www.poly-choke.com/

The Cutts Compensator and Poly-Choke are two different brands. If you have a device that screws onto the muzzle of the gun, or is silver-soldered on, with screw-in choke tubes, you have a Cutts. If it is a single-piece installation that is adjusted with a wrench, it is a Poly-Choke.

If you have a Cutts, simply remove the choke tube from the compensator portion, and use it for slugs that way.

The answer is maybe. Several of the makers of ADJUSTABLE chokes recommend that you do NOT shoot slugs through them- the choke has "fingers" that are spread or tightened as the choke opens or closes- and you may break a finger. Others suggest opening the choke. Myself- I would not- not that it is always unsafe, but accuracy is likely to be marginal at best, or poor.

Open, you don't want any restriction when shooting slugs because they don't compress like shot will I use an improved cylinder choke.

Dont shoot slugs through a full choke. You can do it; but it's very dangerous. This brings pressures to dangerous levels. And it also causes metal fatigue.

I wouldn't. This could destroy the choke and expand the barrel.

In most cases, the makers do not recommend it. With some adjustable chokes, the "fingers" that make up the choke can be damaged by a slug.

They are safe with rifled slugs.
