Thread: Semi auto and solid slug

    Semi auto and solid slug

    Can you shoot slugs through a ordinary barrel with cylinder choke or does it have to be a special barrel?

    cheers. Matt.

    Yes you can shoot slug through an ordinary barrel.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Think half and above is OK.

    Poor answer (what's a ordinary barrel ) full choke , three quarter choke ,half choke , quarter choke, improved cylinder ,there all ordinary barrels ,but I wouldn't put a sold slug through three chokes .

    Acurracy with information like this could just save someone's life .

    Look above it's been discussed recently. Brenneke slugs are designed to pass through any choke.

    By ordinary barrel I meant the one supplied with the gun.

    There was no mention of brenneke slug in the post .

    There are a number of slugs on the market the brenneke and sabot slugs( (Plumbata)are made to compress, totally different make up the normal lead slugs where car must be used in which choke there fired through .

    Doesnt make sense 99% of shotguns come with choked barrels or multi chokes from full through to improved cylinder , cylinder is very rare in shotguns these days .
