CAn someone tell me if I will blow my barrel apart?

What i have is a Ted Williams verision of a winchester 1300 auto. Itis a 12 ga. with the vari-choke on the muzzle.(dog rocket)

My question is will i blow the gun up if I ran a slug thru it.

Can I shoot buckshot thru it?

If so, what size?

Any anwers will do....even the wrong ones

I had one of those guns. Liked it very much. Sold it when groceries got low.

The gun will shoot all the slugs that you can afford to buy. I used quite a few in that old gun. It is a Winchester pump. Has great steel in the barrel. It has been proof tested with max loads. Have fun!!

Re: Buckshot. Buy a 5 round box of #1, 0, 00, & 000. Shoot them at a large piece of paper at 30-40 yds. Continue to use the ones that pattern the best. Police departments all over the country have used these Winchesters with slugs and buckshot. It will shoot any 2 3/4 inch round, including magnums, slugs, and buckshot. In fact, you have one of the best pump guns made. If you need parts ever, buy them for a winchester 1200.

When shooting slugs or buckshot, I suggest that you leave your choke on slug setting. Those polychokes are soldered on but I have never had one to blow off. Buckshot patterns best usually in an Improved cylinder choke.

Sorry to use so many posts, but every time I read your post I see something that I missed.

I have several shotguns with polychokes. Love them.

It maybe a 1200 version. Mine is semi-auto. I have hunted quail and squirrel with it for the last 15 years. I recieved it in a trade knowing absolutley nothing of the gun.

You can safely shoot any factory ammo, except steel shot, in this gun safely. Have fun! Use the Cylinder setting for slugs for aaccuracy reasons.
