YES as a gun dealer for over 8 years I have been ask this question many times and the improved choke barrel is ok for slugs but never in a modified choke or full choke barrel as the slug in the latter 2 barrels will open the choke over time

Can you use slugs in a double barrel shot gun?

You can shoot slugs in a double. Slugs are best shot through a cylinder bore or improved cylinder choke. The tighter the choke, the more they will be disrupted. There is risk of excessive wear and damage through a tight choke--tighter than Modified Choke.


Can you shoot a slug through a cylinder choke?

"Choke" refers to the amount that the barrel is constricted at the muzzle (located at the end of the shotgun barrel). The more constricted the bore opening is, the narrower and denser the pattern of shot which can be thrown. Several degrees of choke are commonly available, including full, improved-modified, modified, improved-cylinder and cylinder bore. Full choke barrels are made for long range shooting because they make the shot pattern denser at greater distances. Improved modified chokes fall between the full choke and the modified choke and are sometimes used in trapshooting. Modified chokes are midway between the full choke and the improved cylinder choke. Improved cylinder and cylinder bore or skeet chokes have little constriction and give the greatest spread (most open pattern) when shot is fired at close range. A slug may be fired through a choke so long as the slug can fit. If the choke is to small at best the choke threads will strip and at worst the barrel will split down the middle killing or maiming you. When in doubt ask the dealer.

How effective is a 32 inch barrel for slugs on a 12 gauge Browning Auto-5 and what is the best slug length to use?

Please dont shoot slugs through a 32" barrel A5. That is undoubtedly a full choke and shooting slugs through it can damage that barrel, which by itself is worth $300. Slug barrels are typically 24" in length with an Improved Cylinder choke.


Can you fire buckshot and slugs through an improved cylinder choke?

Yes, you can fire buckshot and slugs through an improved cylinder choke. Shotgun slugs and pumpkin balls are hollow. They squeeze when fired through the choke. The rifling is on the slug instead of the barrel as in a rifle. ******** You will also find that slugs are smaller than the gauge- a 12 g. slug is actually about 13 g. If you cut open a slug shell, and drop the slug into a barrel, it will drop all the way through. A possible exception is the EXTRA Full Choke used on some turkey shoot guns- and that is not a standard choke.
