Use the imp cyl choke. Rifled slugs will work fine.

Straight cylinder is best, improved modified and modified are good.

I am personally, a little chary about shooting them through a full choke.

What makes you say cylinder is best???how is it better than modified or improved cylinder....I have tried all three and have had the best luck with a modified choke. You can't say in is better than the other its what shoots best in your gun

Straight cylinder is no choke at all. That gives the lowest pressures. It's also the best for heavy buckshot patterns. That's why military and law enforcement use them exclusively.

Well if your gun is threaded for choke tubes you cant shoot it with no choke ....you can shoot a cylinder choke but it is still constricted some you are wrong to say it will give the best patterns bc every gun shoots different
