Well, Deth... So lets say a cylinder bore, as the new Mossies I'm looking at are equiped, paired with a rifled slug, like winchester super x, 1600 fps, what change may need to be made to the choke? Did a little more digging before posting this and looks as if a breaching choke tube can work well with slugs and double 00 buck, a full choke used with cylinder bore... I know only pattering can tell for sure.
I do appreciate the info, it helps me to refine my searches, and things I'm reading are becoming familiar.
if your looking to shoot slugs and buck, cyl bore is perfect. if you plan on going turkey hunting, it aint gonna come close to what you need. it will also pattern way too wide with game loads for things like squirrel and rabbit too. you shouldnt be too bad on things like phesant and quail though.
on the other end of the spectrum, with a full choke, id be weary of shooting most slugs. even if the design of a certain slug will work with a highly constricted choke, its still going to increase the recoil of the round tremendously.
you are really not going to be able to do all that you want with one set choice. if you wan to do it all, youll prob be looking for either a changeable choke, or a set of different bbls.
