shooting slugs through a gun with a screw in choke
 
will it hurt to shoot slugs in a single barreled shotgun with a screw in choke? i will be using a improved cylinder choke tube with foster type slugs. will it blow my choke tube out? thanks

Perfectly safe I've done it for years

Your good to go

You are good to go. Stick with Imp cyl or cyl tubes when using slugs and you will be fine.

Modified works just as good

I think masterPsmith was inferring that the use of cylinder or improved cylinder chokes would most likely result in the most accuracy.

Thsts a myth too every slug gun I've tried a modified tube in has always shot better with the modified tube

Update!!
 
well i shot the slugs and the gun is fine, however it shot a foot low at 50yds. it has a 28" barrel and i'm thinking of cutting it down to 18.5 inches. i'm getting a shorter stock too, as the one on it is too long for me. will a shorter stock help me?, or cutting the barrel down? i would like for it to shoot slugs good but if nothing else i'll make a good camp and trapping gun. thanks

No one can say if cutting the barrel will make it shoot better or worse. Why get a shorter stock when you can easily cut the original down? Did you try a couple different chokes?
