Can you shoot slugs through a improved cylinder choke?
The conventional wisdom has long been that these slugs perform best with an Improved Cylinder choke. Though ammunition is highly variable, and all guns digest ammunition a little differently than one another, I’d be inclined to start with an IC choke. If your accuracy with this choke is acceptable, stick with it.

What is the best choke tube for slugs?
Improved cylinder, cylinder choke, and rifled choke tubes are the best choke tubes for slugs. These choke tubes offer little constriction to provide stability when shooting.
What’s the difference between improved and modified chokes?

What is the difference between light modified and improved cylinder chokes?
The improved cylinder chokes are even less constricted than the light modified ones. As a result, they can distribute a smaller number of pellets – about 50% in a circle of 30 inches and at 40 yards. With these chokes, you will find it easier to hunt ducks and gooses via decoys, especially with rifled slugs.
What is the 12 bore constriction of a modified choke?
The 12 bore constriction of a modified choke is 0.020”. This is one choke tighter than improved cylinder and the two are commonly found together (go to any clay ground or game shoot in the UK and you’re likely to find a significant number of people with a quarter and half choke set up – the equivalent of improved cylinder and modified US).
How far can you shoot with a modified choke tube?
