    Will it damage my barrel to shoot a handful of rounds of 00 buckshot through a fixed full choke Remington Model 31?

    I am curious as to the pattern

    That is what I thought.

    What game animals and at what range do hunters use 00 buckshot?

    That is not what I meant.

    Not being a hunter I would guess turkey racoon and ground hog, but I am curious as to range.

    00 buck is the only ammo allowed for deer in some places. At least when I was in Northern Florida and some parts of NY.

    Can I change the question to: Will any bad things happen to the barrel with a Modified .020 choke tube if you shoot a rifled slug through it ??

    I don't thing anything bad is going to happen to your Modified choke. As far as 00 Buck, I've taken a few deer with 00 buck with my Remington 870 Wingmaster 30" barrel, fixed full choke, rib vent, 1970 vintage pump. A couple never knew what hit them, dumped them right in their tracks, No BS'n around. I love that gun. Deer, ducks, rabbits, pheasants, squirrels all taken with that full choke. That Remmy and a few other 870's and 1100's I have from that era are fixed choked guns. Great guns and none of my constrictions are hurt. Not all slugs are created equal. What kind of slugs are you talking about? Name, style, give some more info.

    miketmx, I've shot many Foster type slugs through modified,imp-mod and full choke guns without any problems. For whatever reason, the modified choked barrels shot better groups for me than did imp-cyl or cyl bores did. Some were shot with peep sights and scopes too. The most accurate I've ever shot were the fully rifled barrels with saboted loads. Truly surprisingly accurate with a good scope way out there for deer hunting!!

    If only chilled buckshot is used, it wont hurt the full choke guns, hard or higher antimony and I wouldn't shoot it through any of my fulls and absolutely zero solid round balls, ie "punkin-balls!! JMHO

    Thanks for the advice. I haven't even looked at slugs for over 30 years but this year there is an early shotgun only season before the rifle season for deer in the zone where I got drawn and buckshot is not allowed. I will be primarily hunting for sharptails with a few slugs in my pocket just in case.
