My daughter and I are heading to MI to hunt deer. My son has a Winchester 1300 20ga youth model that fits her well. We took it out to the range to test different 2 3/4" slugs to see what shot best and suffice it to say that I was not impressed at 40 yards. The gun shot high and spread everything we tried. I think the best 5 shot group was 6" or bigger. We tried Remington, 2 types of Federal, and Winchester slugs. I did not try Brinneke yet.
The gun does have screw in chokes and a 3" chamber. As I have never seriously done anything with slugs I need a bit of help. Looking on the net, there are several different manufacturers of RIFLED CHOKE TUBES. Do they work? Typically on any shotgun you may have tried, how much did it reduce the size of the group from a smooth choke? I did find them for around $40.00.
Rifled barrels are an option, but at $200 large it is a bit of a bite to swallow. If I went that route, what are the pros and cons of different makes or models? I did look in previous posts but found very little guidance.
While I am at it, does anybody have a barrel or choke for sale? Thanks for the help folks.
