Small game shot selection
Gonna hit it equally hard for game season. Although I'm gonna go a few times with the 22 for squirrel only, this is my game plan otherwise. Mostly I'm targeting boar but through the end of the month, I'm hoping for some wood ducks too.
I'm using my mossberg 535 with a 22" smooth bore barrel. Mossberg says I can shoot slugs with everything but a super restricted turkey choke. They recommend the improved for accuracy of slugs.
So my plan, atm, is to keep a slug chambered for pig, and backed up with 2x 3" #4 for jumping wood ducks and squirrel. Prob carry some 7 1/2 if I turn up rabbits or doves somewhere.
Sound solid? Or would I be better off with a mod or full choke and find the accuracy of the slug still acceptable? Or should I be using different loads all together? I will definitely play around with patterning when I get an opportunity but I plan on hitting the woods before I get a chance to do that thoroughly.
