    I have a Remington mod choke tube in my 870. I was wondering if it would be ok to use slugs in it. Pacifically the pdx1 round.

    you should be fine unless the slug is rifled then you need a specific choke the tighter the choke the worse off it will be.

    You can shoot any slug you want to out of a modified choke a rifled slug will shoot the best if you wanna shoot a sabot slug you need a rifled barrel or choke tube

    i have not tryed them, i actually very raely shoot slugs anymore the one place i used to use them is now virtually impossible to hunt they closed the hours to sundown to sunup so all hunting has to be done during the day so i am just talking from my past experince.also i dont beleive it to make it better i prefere personal prefrence nothing more.

    Ok I gotcha if u get back into it try some hornady sst slugs or lightfields they both are good shooting slugs just expensive.....I live in Ohio so shotgun or muzzleloader is all that is legal to deer hunt with here so I have tried about every slug/choke combo lol

    well i started out with slugs because the wildlife area thats all you could use and it was only a 20 minuter drive from my house but they changed all the rules there so i dont go there anymore i just take a hour drive and go up the hill where i can use one of my rifles.the area im talking about is the oroville wildlife area if you watch the show wild justice on the natgeo channel there always writting tickets for people being there after dark.

    I was wondering the same thing, I'm still patterning my shotgun with buckshots through a modified choke and the next step is shooting some slugs through it.
