a buddy of mine was at wits end when i told him that he should not use 00 or 000 buck in a modified choke 12 ga without removing the choke. he then said he did not have a modified choke and that his barrell was a stock mossberg 500 a 12 ga 28 incher. in that case, i replied, a modified barrell with a permanent choke should not be used and to either pursue another barrel that was compatable with his gun or to get another shotgun that coldmeet his needs. his response was what seemed to be more confusion over what i had said.
i just want to make certain that i am correct since i have never fired 00 or 000 buck through a tapered barrell (modified choke) and only used a smooth bore non modifeied for that or a rifled barrell for anything like a slug. i thinki am giving him theright advice but i use separate guns for separate reasons. thats the only reason i ask. that and to get a independant opinion so he can give me that sixer that we bet.
