View Full Version : Smoothbore Slugster Versatility?

October 4, 2001, 08:21 PM
Many years ago I was given an 18.5" smooth slugster bbl for my old Mossy "New Haven". I dug the thing out last night & was wondering if shot/buckshot could be run through it as a CQ gun. Any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Shot/buckshot shouldn't hurt it. I am not too familiar with the "smooth slugster" barrel, but I know rifle barrels are reported to give weird patterns with shot/buckshot.

If it's a smoothbore, it'll do well. Rifled bbls do poorly with any kind of shot.

After fooling with handguns almost exclusively for the last ten years, I'm looking forward to taking up the shotgun again.
