View Full Version : Rifled Barrel & Choke?

May 1, 2005, 07:01 PM
Is it ok to use standard shot (buckshot, etc.) in a fully rifled barrel?

In a broader sense, does the rifled barrel and rifled choke limit ammunition selection?

How "tight" is the fully rifled choke?

A rifled barrel/choke will scatter shot over 3 counties - very poor patterns. A rifled barrel or choke is used for saboted slugs. There should be little or no constriction in a rifled choke.

Is it bad to shoot a slug out of a non-rifled barrel?

No, a "traditional" slug is supposed to be fired from a smooth-bore. I would suggest using a Modified Cylinder choke for better accuracy.
