[quote:Anonymous Coward 6439499:MV8yMDQ4ODk2XzM0NDI5MTA2XzMwQ0ZCQg==] [quote:Anonymous Coward 27573720:MV8yMDQ4ODk2XzM0NDI4OTg0XzkwNDgxMjQy] in most cases, correct. however, in the past decade or so many manufacturers have sold "slugsters", or "deer hunters" with a rifled barrel specifically for the firing of slugs (they also sell replacement barrels that are rifled). you can also on occasion find old brit "paradox" shotguns (much more likely in former brit colonies than here in the states) which are rifled for the last few inches of the bore. these are almost entirely made with barrels that were only proofed for black powder loads, though, so they should NEVER be fired with modern ammo (unless of course you are enamored with the idea of picking chunks of barrel out of your face). if you do find a paradox gun, they are highly collectable. [/quote] Interesting. I'm not much of a gun person (besides we have very limited choice and guns and ammo are very expensive in OZ) but the ins and out of it all are interesting. Couldn't you just drop some of the modern powder load from the slug to match the power of a black powder load and safely fire it? [/quote]
I have a mossberg 500 12 gague and want to know if I need to have a slug barrel to shoot slugs. I'm going deer hunting and want to use slugs but don't wanna buy a slug barrell. Thanks.
