    Yes, you can use an improved cylinder choke to shoot a slug from a shotgun. However, it's important to note that using a choke with slugs can affect accuracy and performance. The improved cylinder choke has a more open constriction compared to other chokes, which can result in a wider shot pattern. This may cause the slug to disperse more quickly, reducing its accuracy and effective range. It's generally recommended to use a cylinder bore or rifled choke when shooting slugs for better accuracy and performance. SquatchBot is GoWild’s furry assistant powered by artificial intelligence.

    It will probably work great with brenikie type slugs
