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.

    • I am more baffled by the people who think the far right and far left are somehow different and not capable of ignorant acts. Like somehow or somewhere the extremists of your party are somehow better than the extremists of the other, hopefully some people are having their eyes opened.

      Even better there are those out there that think if only the left/right could take over and make things they way they are "suppose" to be would suddenly fix everything. Like alienating half the country is going to be good for America. The further the country gets torn in half the more it looks like there is only one place to to go and that is back to the middle where people work together. Of course that would put a lot of the media out of work but it is more clear than ever they are more of a hazzard than anything.
    • If I remember correctly Ted Cruz did call him a pathological liar during the primaries.
    • How anybody can believe any word that comes out of that pumpkin pie hole is beyond me.   Y'all got duped by a compulsive liar. At least he has that part of being a politician down pat, but for it to work ya need to slip some truth in there now and again.
    • And yet?   Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump Jan 21 A fantastic day and evening in Washington D.C.Thank you to @FoxNews and so many other news outlets for the GREAT reviews of the speech!
    • I find it amusing to watch Fox slowly come to grips with the realization that a war against the media impacts them too.   They are completely gobsmacked over the crowd size press conference. As we all should be. How embarrassing.
    • Totally agree!
