"i got the mossberg 500 now can i shoot a rifled slug through the field barrel if so what choke should i use???"

Not reading makes us look silly! I know that feeling well.
Freedom is not free. The best of us always leave too soon.

Yes you can shoot Foster type slugs through your field barrel but not sabots. Improved Cylinder would be the best choke to use but some guns shoot better with modified chokes. I would suggest that you try several different brands of slugs to see which one your gun likes best.
A gun is like a wife. If you can't love the one you have get a divorce from it and go find one you can lovel

The stock on mine broke right where it mates to the receiver after considerable use and I have seen a few others that are operating under taped conditions. Probably the birch (i think) stock. Those can be replaced however. Never had any problems with the actual function and I've had both a 20 and a 12.
