Can I use a 2 1/2 slug in a Rossi 410

I have a new Rossi 3" chambered single shot .
I just purchased a box of Winchester 410 slugs 2 1/2 inches long ,
so what I dont under stand if these type shotguns can shoot either length shells wouldn't the smaller 2-1/2" hang up on the inside ridge in the chamber or does the plastic shell end come out with the slug?

They'll work just fine. About all I shoot in my 3" chambers is 2-" shells.

Thanks so much for the good news because after I had though about the chamber size I began to think about logical things on that. here is a photo if it can help

The diagram you have is exaggerated to be able to show the different areas of the chamber. As Flash said, there will be no issue with you shooting those in your 3" 410. My 410 Skeet gun has had tens of thousands of 2 1/2 shells run through it and has 3" chambers.

Good luck and have fun.

Are you talking effective range or maximum range it can travel?

I used to hunt hogs with a Win model 42 .410 pump. It was very effective out to about 30 yds, but I never got any shots longer than that because of the dense cover we hunted in down in south Alabama. I can't testify to its effectiveness beyond 30 yds.

What is the choke on the barrel?

Are you using the bead on the barrel for a sight or do you have rifle type sights or an optic?
