slugs out of a youth gun
 
Are slugs safe to shot out of a Remington youth 870 express? By safe I mean able to shoot it without the gun flying out of your hands because of the recoil you get from slugs.

yes and 10 more characters

I do it all the time. It's manageable

Thanks guys. I bought some Winchester lead fosters a few years ago because I couldn't find any shells for my rifle. I plan to shoot a few off this summer and maybe deer hunt with them.

Never had a problem doing so myself ( youth 870 and youth M500). Just remember to use a modified or IC choke to lessen the amount of deformation to the slugs. This will improve accuracy most of the time.

How far can I ethically shoot with that setup?

I have a 21" barrel with a mod choke

how are we supposed to know what distance you can shoot at???

take it 2 the range with a bunch of ammo and find out. if your shots arent in a reasonable 6 in area you're to far.

90% of slug gun can at least shoot accurately out to 75-100 yards with a good setup

I meant how far can I shoot with that rig and still have enough speed and energy to cleanly kill a deer.?
