Re: ? about shooting slugs in Mossberg 500
It isn't a good idea, because the choke tube threads will be damaged and choke tubes will no longer fit.
Be better to pick up an inexpensive Improved Cylinder tube and install it in the barrel. Or spend some more money and buy one of the extended tubes w/rifling?
I have a 24" smooth slug barrel w/rifle sights, for the M500. With cheapo 2-3/4" Win. or Rem. one ounce slugs, it'll put them into about 4" at fifty yards.
Also have a 24" rifled slug barrel. Lightfield 2-3/4" saboted slugs will do about 2" or less at 100 yards, scoped. Fired <u>one</u> 3" magnum slug and that was enough for me.
