    Ultra Slug Gun Barrel Fluting

    I just finished fluting another H&R Ultra Slug Hunter barrel, and I'd like your opinion on how you think it looks. The barrel will be cerakoted once the color is chosen.

    Besides fluting, the muzzle was also recrowned, and the throat was recut with a long lead angle.

    The barrel and base were modified to 5 screws, and once everything is cerakoted, the base will be bedded to the barrel.

    Trigger pull was adjusted down to 2 pounds 8 oz..

    Before the barrel was fluted, the forend was pillar and glass bedded.

    Last 2 pictures show another Ultra Slug barrel that has been cerakoted in a matte black.

    Now that's what I call a slug barrel. Rifled or smooth bore?. Never having seen one like that before with really thick walls. Makes my shorty 870 police barrels look like tubing. Frank

    They are rifled. 20's + 12's. Very heavy to carry. Most shot like a house aw fire. Pricey around here in Southern Illinois.
