  • Yes, set choke to cylinder.
  • Yes, you can use slugs in a poly choke gun i have a mossberg New Haven model and i use slugs in it all the time just make shure that you open the choke up to mod. or im cyl or just the most open setting on the poly choke it shouldn't matter the your gun is a jc and mines a mossberg when i shoot slugs in it i use the inmrpved clyinder setting its the most open setting that my gun has just make shure you don't lossen the choke too much or you might shoot of the choke all together (my grandpa did that with his 12 ga. anyway
  • Poly Chokes have a "slug" setting or use Cylinder or Improved Cylinder. They are safe with rifled slugs. Ask Poly Choke Inc. before trying sabots which are meant for rifled barrel anyway and aren't accurate out of a smoothbore.

Can you shoot a slug in any 12 gage shot gun?

No. It is unsafe to shoot slugs in a shotgun with a full choke. A full choke shotgun may not allow the slug to pass through and could injure the gun and the shooter. Slugs will work fine in ANY shotgun that has a cylinder, improved cylinder, or modified cylinder choke. If you happen to have a shotgun with crew in chokes, it will be easy to switch chokes. Most slugs that people use are the foster- type slugs. These slugs feature a hollow base and are made of softer lead and are found at most stores. They are made by Remington, Winchester, and Federal. These slugs are more forgiving as they can sometimes squeeze through a tighter choke. Slugs like those from Brenneke and Dixie slugs are made of harden lead and are less forgiving. These slugs are safest used in shotguns that have cylinder or improved cylinder chokes.
