Which 500 barrel execute you have?You deserve to use standard "rifled"(Foster or Brenneke style)slugs in a conventional smoothbore barrel. One IC choke pipe will most likely work best with many "rifled" slugs.A smoothbore slug barrel usually offers you better sighting options, such together rifle sights or a scope mount, yet otherwise is no different than a ar barrel. A rifled slug barrel can give much better long-range accuracy but requires sabot slugs.And yes, the language is confusing. You don"t use "rifled" slug in a rifled barrel, even though it sound logical.
im not precisely sure what barrel it is. That a 20" 12guage. Top top the optimal of it close come the human body it has a p stamped into it. Top top the left side it states -chambered because that 2/3/4 and 3 in shells-12 GA.-cylinder bore- make in usaand ns dont think it has a choke. The choke is one adapter that screws ~ above the end of the barrel correct? if so,its not even threaded for one**also,what does a throttle do?**
"Choke" is a slight reduction in the barrel inner diameter close to the muzzle. The objective is to produce a smaller sized shot pattern through birdshot so the it will be effective at a much longer range.Older firearms have addressed chokes. The limit is part of the barrel and cannot be adjusted except through machining. Newer guns have interchangeable interchangeable choke tubes.The most usual sizes -- open to chop -- are:Cylinder -- no constrictionSkeetImproved CylinderModifiedFullYou"ll likewise see light Modified, Extra-Full, and also other variations.With your barrel being Cylinder, the is for sure to use through slugs."The Remington overview to Shotguns" below has good information top top guns and also loads:http://www.remington.com/pages/news-and ...

one an ext question.. Perform i require a choke to shoot slugs? or space they just great for bird-shot?, i beg your pardon is what i typically shoot. And also would it have to be placed on by a gunsmith since my barrel is no threaded or anything?
It sounds together though you have actually a Cylinder barrel that is no threaded because that choke tubes. It is good for slug as is.Try a couple of different brands and also see i m sorry works best in your gun.
