This is probably a pretty noob-ish question but,
Do any of you do a barrel break-in with your slug guns like you would do with a new rifle?
If so, how should I go about it?
what else can I do to improve the accuracy?
I'd like to have it shooting as accurately as possible.
My ultimate goal is to get 4" groups at 200 yards.
Thanks in advance,
I would have to guess that the answer is no because most slugs are sabot or lead and foul
differently than jacketed bullets.
Sabots do foul but it is plastic and there are solvents for plastics that will remove it.
Lead bullets LEAD FOUL and once again there are products to remove the lead from the bore.
Slug guns are normally rifled and need to be cleaned but for a different reason than copper
Also shotguns are relatively slower than rifles sow the normal use should be enough.
Just a guess
