Testing Rifled Choke for Shotguns
I’ve bought a rifled choke a lot of time ago. Finally, I have tested it on the range today. Rifled choke is believed to stabilize a projectile in flight giving it a spin and better accuracy.
Distance was about 50 meters (54 yards). Shooting from the rest. I have used A4 (8.2 inches x 11.6 inches) size target.
Slugs used: RIO Royal Star Slug

Do Rifled Choke Tubes Improve Slug Accuracy?
First results show that there is no dramatical changes when using rifled choke. Skills of a shooter and proper aiming and trigger pull are more important.
I plan to test rifled choke on longer distance and with other types of slugs.
