Is a different barrel needed for buckshot than birdshot? Answered


I have a Remington 870 20-gauge with the factory barrel and choke installed. So far it has been shooting birdshot just fine, my question is, is a different barrel needed for buckshot? I know a different one is needed for slugs, but is the same true for buckshot?

Yep, the regular bird shot barrel will work fine with buckshot. Just don't choke it down too much, as it may cause deformation of the shot.
