Rifled Chokes Accuracy?
« on: December 03, 2008, 09:49:16 AM »
In Tenn all of our WMAs are shotgun slugs only for deer so, I was trying to sight in a scope on my smoothbore Rem 870 using rifled slugs. The shot were pretty inconsistant.

An oldtimer that was there suggested a rifled choke that they make now. Does anyone have any experience with Rifled chokes?  I need to get the slugs consistant before I trust it to hunt with. Until then I will continue to use the Bow.

Two years ago I bought a slug barrel for my Mossburg.   It is a smooth bore barrel so I used rifled slugs.   I tried the 3" magnum slugs but when I put a scope on the gun I dropped back to 2 3/4" slugs.  I could get a 6 inch circle at 100 yds with it.

i tried rifled chokes and did not get consistent grouping, i even tried letting others shoot gun but still was either 4 inch out at 100

i just recently bought a rifled barrel for my 870 cause that is what the buds use  and with rifled barrel and winchestor partition golds at 2 3/4 inch it is dead on at 100 and 2 inch low at 150

I've been shooting rifled in NJ since 1975 mostly from a Remington 1100 smooth slug barrel .Even with a reciever mounted scope it shot 4'' or less groups @100 yds.With 870 or 1100 make sure the magizine cap stays tight.If possible get a full rifle barrel with canilever scope mount and shoot 2 3/4'' sabot slugs

these guys claim 2 in groups at 100 yds with a smoothbore barrel, i like them i am able to hold 4 in groups @ 100 yds with them.  Havent shot a deer with one yet, (been using the .308) but the damage they inflict to the plywood target and trees beyond is incredible!
venison is yummy.
