Default New to benelli

I just bought a benelli sporter 2 Was wondering if it was safe to shoot deer slugs through the stock barrel until I can afford the rifled slug barrel or should I just wait till I get the barrel And if so what choke tube should I use?

Rifled slugs will be fine. You may need to experiment to see which ones are most accurate. You should be able to look in the manual and see about a plug. Download a manual if you don't have one. And a piece of 3/8"s inch wooden dowel with the ends rounded will work just fine. Federal rules limit guns to a total of 3 rounds for migratory birds, but state laws vary. Make sure you can only get two 2-3/4" shells in the magazine if you make one. A friend sized his plug for 3" shells and almost got a ticket. I think the fact he only had 3" shells on him and his honest reply saved him.

Well Virginian just answered all your questions except one....as far as chokes experiment with a few different ones but I always have the best accuracy with a modified but I would try a improved cylinder and a skeet/cylinder choke to be sure you are getting the best accuracy out of your gun

Benelli = the Stradivaris of shotguns. IMHO

No the the only thing is you prolly aren't going tu get much accuracy or off anything tighter than a modified but different guns shoot different ways the best thing you can do is shoot it

Are you certain the magazine does not contain a plug already? How many shells will the mag tube hold? If 4 is max, as the V'n said, cut a 3/8 dowel the length of two shells, round the ends a tad so the spring does snag, and you are good to go
