Clean vs. Dirty Barrel: Shotgun

890 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Gargoyle
Will a shotgun slug barrel show a greater amount of difference between shooting it clean vs dirty. I know rifles barrels will show a little difference in group size, but will a slug show a greater difference?

I grouped the shotgun while it had a dirty barrel. Cleaned it and at 100 yds the shot went high 5". Don't have alot of money to be shooting $1.50 slugs, just wondered if this is normal.

Saboted slugs seem to be more sensitive to barrel residue than lead 1oz rifled slugs in my experience. Your results seem extreme but possible. I've only seen about 1-1/12" group variance through rifled barreled shotguns firing saboted rounds. Since you stated the $1.50 price tag I assume you are refering to sabotted slugs. You are using a rifled barrel for these aren't you??

Rick,
Oh yes, Deerslayer II rifled barrel with Lightfield 1,1/4 oz hybrid sabot slugs.
