    I have a Mossberg model 500 12ga pump with a 28" barrel.If I screw in a full choke tube, would there be any problem to the barrel or choke tube shooting deer slugs? Also, what is the best choke tube for shooting deer slugs? Thanks loads! gatorbait

    Don't shoot slugs through a full choke. You'll get better performance with a cylinder or skeet choke and, in any event, I wouldn't recommend you use anything tighter than Improved Cylinder.

      Hey gatorbait---I'll chime in with my tale of woe. I sometimes hunt in a shotgun-only state and typically use my 12 ga. Mossberg when I do. One season, I got to camp late, grabbed my gun and headed out---I'd forgotten to change out the choke since I last used the gun during turkey season. What happened next was tragic. Armed with a doe permit, I spotted a doe running toward me. When I was about to pull the trigger, I spied a buck behind her. He was absolutely huge. With double-drop palmated antlers, I guessed him in the 170s. I missed him (several times) and when I finally got done shooting came to the realization that I still had my turkey choke in my gun. Did it 'cause' me to miss? I'm still not certain (I took two shots when I got back to camp and they were pretty much dead on). However, in this case I think I'd go with Mr. Snow's recommendation.

        Do not shoot a slug from a full choke!! I was told a story that back before I was a twinkle in my moms eye (yeah, those are the exact words) one of my dad's hunting buddies named JB decided one day to see if he could kill a deer with a slug. He saw a doe and, well lets just say the gun never fired another shot.
        We still hunt with JB and I have heard the story many times. He vows to never hunt with a slug again. Good thing we live where we can use rifles.

          I am not sure that there would be any harm in it. I would rather use an open choke or improved cylinder. I have heard that it can loosen the choke a bit, but like I said have no first hand knowledge of that happening.

            These folks are right. Even if you have to buy an IC tube it is worth it. You might even be able to find a rifled tube for your Mossberg. That's what I use in my Rem 870.

                I own a Mossberg Maverick 88 .... I have shot foster slugs through a MOD choke but the manual said IC for best performance .... I will be getting an IC choke soon .... I dont know if this is universal or not but read that IC for foster slugs .... MOD for buck shot and FULL or Extra FULL for bird shot .... that is the standard I follow now .... hope this helps ....
