View Full Version : 870 Slug Barrel Twist Rate

November 11, 2012, 09:31 AM
I have a Remington 870 Super Mag with a remington 23" cantilever fully rifled slug barrel (remington part number 27597). Does anyone off the top of their head know the twist rate of this barrel. Thanks for your help.

Should be 35 based on the sticky in Shotgun Slug Forum at Shotgun World web site.

Thanks. I tried searching but couldn't find anything.

I would email remington. If I ever have any question about one of my Remington guns I email them and they normally get back with me in 1 or 2 days

A+ on contacting Remington techs.

A cleaning rod with a mop on the end and a tape measure will tell you all you want to know.

Thanks everyone for all the input. After learning it was a 1:35 twist I choose several larger slugs to try. I finally settled on the Remington Copper solid 1 ounce sabot. It shot very well, and hands down better than the lighter slugs I initially tried (ie. 300 gr hornadys). Thanks again for all the help.

That is a fine sabot slug.
