The only way that the isn"t a an excellent idea would be if you have actually a totally rifled barrel the slugs space the cheapie remington slug which aren"t intended for a rifled barrel. They room the ones in the little five ring boxes, are everywhere in wally human being during deer season and come in a green/yellow box. If girlfriend shoot those slugs v a rifled barrel girlfriend can damages the rifling in the barrel. If you have a smooth boring "bird" barrel ~ above the shotgun girlfriend should have actually no problem shooting any kind of slugs through it, though ns don"t recomend rifled slugs through a smooth barrel since you won"t gain the accuracy you require out of them, yet that shouldn"t damages the gun. If you"re using slugs for HD, and you have a smooth barrel on it, then I"d say obtain some the the cheapie remmy slugs and they have to work.

I"d i think it"s a choke on the finish of the barrel, is the a tight, or spread out pattern? If it"s a tight pattern choke, then no, friend shouldn"t be shooting slugs. If it"s a large pattern, then slugs are OK, so long as they"re rifled. Walk it have actually changeable chokes (there will certainly be a tube with little notches inside the end of the barrel for the choking wrench)?? If so, friend can change the choke come one that"s great for slugs. The remington sluggers suck for any type of distance over 25 yards, they"re underpowered. That could be good for residence defense though. I"d obtain the winchester slugs, much better performance. As much as accuracy, anything as much as 50 yards is nice decent through a smooth bore and also winchester cheapo rifled slugs. ~ 50, lock drop like a rock though. It"s much more than an excellent enough to kill a deer.
HELP,
I"m drown in Kool Aid, and also lost my silver paper hat! "What good fortune for federal governments that the civilization do not think." Adolph HitlerI"m gonna eat her brains and also gain your knowledge!! :shock:
Forgot come mention, If you have actually changeable chokes, carry out NOT shoot anything ever before without a choke pipe installed.... Due to the fact that you shed the manual I thought it can be worth mentioning.

I would say if you probably have a open bore cylinder, which means you have actually no choke. In that instance yes you deserve to shoot slugs. Additionally you deserve to shoot slug if you have a modified choking tube. You have the right to tell this by, if a dime will drop with the service end of your barrel. I bought some Breneke slugs for my 500, and they shooting no problem. Also you perform not have to have rifled slugs, come shoot through a smooth bore barrel
