New 870 DM Predator Kryptek

Post by CZ173 » Sat Jan 04, 2020 10:16 pm

I just purchased the above Remington 12ga and have some questions. All help would be greatly appreciated it

Which slugs would be best to use?
Can all slugs be used?
Which of the 2 chokes should I use for slugs?
Can I purchase any 870 12ga barrel for it?
What accessories can I add to this model?

Thanks in Advance!

Welcome and howdy. Uh, right off too many questions with too little info.

Which barrel do you have? Rifle slugs are for smoothbore barrels, sabot slugs are for rifled slug barrels. Best used with cylinder bore choke, which is a common RemChoke. Which chokes do you have?

I'm guessing that neither of those "full" chokes are going to be what you want for slugs. However you want to check if they are good to use for buckshot, as some folks use buckshot for deer. The ghost-ring sights are not very optimal for hunting at ranges of 50-70 yards (slug range).

The best thing about replaceable chokes is that you can get as many as you need for any purpose. Get Cylinder or Rifled choke for slugs. I was surprised how Rifled choke improved accuracy with some of the slugs.
