    OK got a slug shoot comeing up. I have a XT with a PFS I would like to use this with 1oz reminton sluggers, I for the life of me can not find a riffled choke tube by then, I have a imp cyl and IM choke tube. what would be a better choice. Last year I used my 870 slug barrel, shot 15 shots, beat me up. Would like to use XT with PFS to ease recoil a bit.

    You will definitely have a different POI with the XT.

    Do what you want.

    Mossberg warns against using slugs in bores that are larger than normal. Specifically their 835. The problem is that that the slug can cock in the bore and get momentarily stuck, sending pressures skyrocketing, or fully stuck causing an obstruction.<br>
    <br>
    Here is the info from Mossberg:<br>
    <br>
    Can I fire slugs through my 935™ or 835® vent rib, Accu-Mag® choke tube barrel?<br>
    <br>
    No, 935™ and 835® field barrels (those with a ventilated rib) are "overbored," and the extra inside diameter may cause the projectile to "wobble" producing unreliable accuracy. A projectile may wedge inside the barrel causing an obstruction. Obstructions of any kind can cause damage to the firearm resulting in damage to the barrel and/or personal injury to you or those around you. Dedicated fully rifled slug barrels are available for the 935™ and 835® models. Other 935™ and 835® Accu-Mag® choke tube notes: Buckshot and steel-shot loads are not recommended for use with an extra full turkey tube installed.

    If you are shooting of a bench bring a bag of shot with you. Put it on the bench between your shoulder and the recoil pad of the slug gun. End of recoil. HMB
