Which choke to use?

5 posts in this topic

I will be taking my daughter deer hunting for the first time this year. I bought her a Mossberg Bantam .20 ga. to use for ducks and pheasants. The gun fits her perfect and now this year she is going to use it for deer. It is a smooth bore (we'll see how well she likes deer hunting before I get a slug barrel). I have always had a slug barrel, so it was never an issue - I shot sabots and that was it. Which choke do you use in a smooth bore to shoot rifled slugs?

Thanks in advance,

DL

Put the IC choke in and call it good. Just buy some different slugs and find which ones shoot the best.

IC is probbly the best stock choke to use you could also see if they sell rifled choke tubes for that gun? Good luck hunting

You may also want to look into a rifled choke tube and use sabots. I know most of the major retailers carry them. I have had really good luck with that setup in my old 870 standby. I threw on a shot gun scope and away we went. 100 yard shots are a pretty consistant 2" group. Best brush gun I have ever owned.

I think Remington makes Managed recoil 20 ga. slugs. Probably worth checking into. I wouldn't spend the money for a rifled choke tube unless the barrel has rifle sights or a scope. The major limitation would be the sights used and a rifled choke tube/ sabot slug combo is not going to overcome that.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
