Fox Model B-SE


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I have to measure the thing when I get home to find the choke config, but the question is pretty general, and seems to draw mixed opinions;

Should I load Slugs in this gun?

Seems I have 2 possible options/outcomes.

1. 28" Full/Mod = Slug possible in the Mod Barrel only
2. 26" IC/Mod = Slug in either or Both

the above is providing my research is correct.

I don't think there are any slugs that can take a full choke with out doing some damage.


can someone kindly confirm the above for me? And/or give opinions-feedback?

Slugs

I don't think theirs any factory slug load that will harm a full choke.The co's know bubba is going to stuff them in his 30" full choke.Only thing I'd be leary of is a cast round ball if it wouldn't fit through the choke.Problem with doubles is they won't put slugs to the same point of aim from boath barrels.What would be better is one slug and buck in the next barrel.If boath barrels throw slugs to the same point of aim quick buy a lottery ticket.

Forster type rifled slugs won't hurt anything in any full choke. Sabots are designed to be used with rifling.

Thanks for the feedback.

Honestly, I didn't think Slugs were going to damage this. The gun is from the 60's, it was used on a farm back in Ohio for small deer and bird. So Both Buck and Slugs were fired from it.

I did push slugs through it (Rifled, Hollow point) this past weekend, and I did notice alot more kick from the full choke barrel, which is normal. But nothing got damaged, other then my weak *** shoulder (after firing FMJ .303 packed with 201+Grn, the 20ga hurts a bit)


But, at the 200yr firing range, some old 'range safty asshat' gave me alot of issues about slugs through that gun, infact he wouldnt let me shoot them at all. Eventually I demanded my entery fees back and left, telling them to get rid the old ******* who doesnt know wtf hes talking about.

But it did get me thinking, 'what if he's right' While i know my family has pushed different rounds through this since its purchase, i didnt want to be the one to damage it with 'modern' day slugs. so hence the forum post on this topic :-)

so, thanks for clearing my confusion :-)
