Q:
can i shoot a slug of of a gun with a screw in full choke? i wont expect it to be acurate,but on the remington slugger box it says rifled slugs may be fired through any choke. im just wondering because im going coyote hunting with my shotgun and #4 buck but incase i need to finish the coyote off i like to shoot it with a slug.

No, if you have screw in chokes get an Improved Cylinder or whatever the slug box recommends. A full choke is too small to shoot a slug from.

Ditto. Not a good idea. Buckshot should do the job coyotes are not that hard to kill.

Moishe is right. It is not worth the trouble to change ammo for that job, esp. if you're worried about possible damage to the gun.

If you need to finish an animal off be humane. Bring a .22 and put one to the brain, a slug is not needed.

not an appropriate use for a shotgun slug. stick with the shot. Jim in MO is right about the .22... but you'll probably be fine with the shotgun only.

slugs are for big game, and read the packaging. There are Sabot type shotshells for fully rifled barrels, and then Foster-type shotshells for smooth barrels. Foster-type shotshell slugs you want an Improved Cylinder choke (IC).

you need modified choke if your going use slug but ammo change would be better

finish them off with close range #6 save more expensive slugs.
