    It has came up many times where someone has asked "can I shoot a slug through this choke or that choke?".

    And I have seen a LOT of answers, including on this forum.

    A while back, I saw this video and planned to embed it here because it answers that question and is the best explanation that I have seen.

    Fast forward to 2:00 to get to the meat of the answer

    Grand Dads full choke single shot gun fired MANY 1-oz foster slugs during his lifetime and killed a buttload of white tail deer. I'm going to shoot some more maybe this weekend thru that break open shotgun!.

    This video was probably the best explanation I've ever seen on the subject.

    In a project that I recently have began measuring for, I realized that my 1989 Remington barrel with a cylinder choke, which has apparently seen its' fair share of slugs through it, has actually opened up to what would equate to be a NEGATIVE choke. It is currently .740" at the muzzle.
