    I just bought a benelli sporter 2 Was wondering if it was safe to shoot deer slugs through the stock barrel until I can afford the rifled slug barrel or should I just wait till I get the barrel And if so what choke tube should I use?

    Rifled slugs will be fine. You may need to experiment to see which ones are most accurate. You should be able to look in the manual and see about a plug. Download a manual if you don't have one. And a piece of 3/8"s inch wooden dowel with the ends rounded will work just fine. Federal rules limit guns to a total of 3 rounds for migratory birds, but state laws vary. Make sure you can only get two 2-3/4" shells in the magazine if you make one. A friend sized his plug for 3" shells and almost got a ticket. I think the fact he only had 3" shells on him and his honest reply saved him.

    Well Virginian just answered all your questions except one....as far as chokes experiment with a few different ones but I always have the best accuracy with a modified but I would try a improved cylinder and a skeet/cylinder choke to be sure you are getting the best accuracy out of your gun

    No the the only thing is you prolly aren't going tu get much accuracy or off anything tighter than a modified but different guns shoot different ways the best thing you can do is shoot it

    Are you certain the magazine does not contain a plug already? How many shells will the mag tube hold? If 4 is max, as the V'n said, cut a 3/8 dowel the length of two shells, round the ends a tad so the spring does snag, and you are good to go
