Best slug for shooting slugs & buckshot

Wondering what choke tube works best to shoot slugs from my 20 ga. Mossberg? How about for shooting buckshot?

Re: Best slug for shooting slugs & buckshot

You probably need to do some home-grown experimentation on this for buck. However, for slugs you should not use anything tighter than a modified choke. Consider a cylinder configuration for slugs as well.

I would use the most open choke ya have. Never go tight chokes on the large shot and slugs... You will mess up ur BBL.

Buy a few or borrow a few if you can and get several types of ammo and go to the range.....get a buddy who is interested in the same thing, has a 20. ga. and split the cost of ammo....Only way to know for sure.
