Pellets or slugs. shotguns usually shoot shot or pellets, but you can shoot slugs. in Indiana we use a shotgun to hunt deer and use shotgun slugs, better to use a barrel with no choke in it. cylinder bore preferred.
NO,NO,NO,NO do not chance it, I blew a 20 gauge barrel up that had a poly-chokeI would Google PolyChoke and ask them. I think it is o.k. with the choke set on IC or Cylinder, but ask them first.
The JC Higgins Model 20 is a well-made firearm. Provided you have it checked by a competent gunsmith, it can handle any standard 12ga 2 3/4" shotshell. If the gun is not choked 'FULL' you should be able to use slugs.
You can, but I wouldn't advise it.
You need to contact Remington for an answer.
Deer slugs are the shotgun shells to use when deer hunting.
Open, you don't want any restriction when shooting slugs because they don't compress like shot will I use an improved cylinder choke.
Yes- that is what the poly-choke is for.
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.
Whatever you can use effectively. Most shotgunners in the US opt for a 12-Gauge, but be a sport and use a .410, with deer slugs.
I would suggest a Winchester or a 30 ought six or a shotgun with deer slugs.
In states that do not allow the use of a high-power rifle to hunt deer, you may be able to use a shotgun loaded with buckshot or slugs.
Depends on what you are hunting. Some game like birds require a shotgun, while deer typically require the use of rifles or shotguns with slugs instead of shot.
You "can" so to say , but if the barrel is not rifled then you will end up damaging it after a little while.
Rifled slugs may be safely fired thru MOST shotgun barrels, The makers of some variable chokes recommend that slugs NOT be fired thru them, and turkey guns that use the Extra Full choke aer not usually recommended for slug shooting.
That will depend on your shotgun. The best way to find out is to buy as many different types/brands as you can and shoot them.
Yes. Slugs can be fired in any modern shotgun. It is best to use an improved cylinder barrel. Modified and full chokes are usually not as accurate, and too many slugs can cause them to pattern poorly with shot loads, although it is perfectly safe to use them.
Your shotgun was made for Sears by Stevens, and is their model 311. It should take 2.5 inch and 3 inch .410 shells.
You would need a rifled choke tube to fire sabots from your smooth bore shotgun. See a firearms dealer for more information about obtaining one for your particular shotgun.
Generally "Pellets" or "Shot" contained in "Shells". There are also solid shot "Slugs" similarly contained in "Shells". I'd use Shells ie "8 shotgun shells", unless you are specifying exactly the type.
Yes, but you should use choke tubes specifically designed for slugs OR nothing tighter than Improved Cylinder. firstname.lastname@example.org
no you cannot. sabot slugs are made for rifled barrels. I would buy a rifled slug barrel.
