    Talking Mossy under the tree!

    Santa was AWESOME this year! Found a Mossy 500 w/24" rifled slug barrel w/a scope. A 28" accu choke w/ 3 chokes both with vent ribs. Gonna make a trip to stock up on ammo for it later this afternoon.

    Question though... I know I need sabot slugs for the rifled slug barrel, but can I safely shoot 00 buck thru the slug barrel as well?

    AWESOME XMAS!

    More likely you will donut your pattern... but I might be wrong. You may want to buy a smoothebore barrel
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    Congratulations on the new shotgun. One heck of a nice Christmas present.

    You can shoot shot out of the slug barrel, the real question is what you will hit with it. My only experience is with a friends 870 with a rifled barrel. At 15 yards, only 2 of the 9 pellets hit a B-27 size (35" X 45") target. Could be a great crowd sweeper, but not something I'd like to use inside my home and beyond 15 yards outside, I'd question whether you could get enough pellets in the target to stop the threat. It's unlikely you'd be shooting at a human target at much more than 15-20 yards but for dangerous critters that provide and even smaller target than a human torso, your chances of a hit would diminish even further. From this one experience, I've concluded that rifled barrels are great for slugs, but a less than ideal choice for shot. Luckily, you've already got the smoothbore barrel for shot so if you want to keep buckshot loaded for HD, I'd leave the smoothbore barrel installed in the house.
