type of choke for slug shots?

Recommended Posts

I Just ordered my benelli but have previously shot remington 870's and 1187's, ithacas and what not ( too many to list) but never a 912 ( made by franchi right?) but in all the other shotguns i have shot there all smoothbore barrels, so find out if you have a smoothbore barrel or rifled first, then if you have a smoothbore you should get rifled slugs and for shooting them i have always used an Improved Cylinder choke. Hope this helped maybe get another opinion on it as well just to be sure!

Im needing to find out what type of choke to use in my 912 Variomax for shooting slugs?

 

Why dont you go to carlsons choke tubes and purchase like 10 different crio plus chokes for your variomax im sure you will be happy :mad:

in a smooth bore barrel I don't use any choke for slugs (rifled slugs) and the accuracy is more dependent on my own ability to shoot that is the shotgun. With a zero magnification red dot I hit between 8"-10" MOA @ 100yards. I'd say thats pretty good.

 

I don't know if a choke would help a slug or not. I really don't see how it would help because chokes are made to keep multiple projectiles into a tighter group (slug is a single projectile) ...I don't see how a choke would help?

 

On the other hand I've never used a choke on a slug (I feel Im accurate enough without it) ...so maybe it would help?
