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.
