I once decided I would put a scope on a 12 ga single barrel. I was going to shorten it to about 22 inches. Before I actually cut it off, I thought I would see how it shot.sdonegan said:Any feedback on using slugs through a MOD choke version of the NEF 12 GA welcomed
Have to put a differnt view out. IF you only want 20ga. perfomance, buy a 20ga. Reduced recoil 12ga. slugs (law enforcement type slugs) are great for faster repeat shots and still carry plenty of energy for paper or human targets...but in a single shot, that fast recovery is not very important. Lighter loads will decrease recoil....but it's not without a balistic price to pay; there just aren't that many shots at game animals to make recoil a real issue. Recoil is an issue at a long range session where you may shoot 20, 30, or even 50 rounds...but in the field with a single shot, if you don't tag it with round #1, the follow up shots are probably unimportant.Ralph McLaney said:Gentlemen:
In ultralight 12 bore guns, reduced recoil slugs are the only way to go. A one ounce slug at 1200 fps has essentially 20 gauge recoil.
