    Living in Iowa, we have been a slug only state for most of our deer hunting yrs (can use straight wall rifle/handgun cartridges now). MANY deer have been shot with full choke bird hunting guns using the foster type slugs with no damage to the guns. I would shoot a few slugs with the choke you mentioned to be sure of their impact characteristics and you will be good to go. If you would happen to have the need to fire on a bear, a couple slugs through that choke will do no harm at all.

    20ga Brenneke slugs work well through full and Improved Modified chokes.

    I Shoot Brenneke slugs through a full choke in my Benelli Vinci.

    Personally I would not hesitate to shoot any foster slug or any Brenneke slug designed for smooth bore barrels through your gun and choke combo.

    If it was me I’d call Benelli and have a talk. That would make my decision
