Does it have the 28" vent rib barrel or is it the Protector model with the 18.5" bead sight barrel? Either way yes you can shoot rifled slugs through them, that is what rifled slugs are for. If you have the 28" barrel make sure you use the right choke, not one tighter than modified. If you have one with a rifled slug barrel then use sabot slugs. If you are just using a bead sight then try to keep your shots around 50 yards or so, no use wounding an animal.

If you add a scope you should be good to 100 yards or so. Depending on your budget I would personally recommend a Leupold or a Nikon shotgun scope. Some of the Mueller and Bushnell scopes are okay as well. Keep in mind that a 12 gauge shooting slugs has quite a bit of recoil and it will break a cheap scope.

The reason I say keep your shots around 50 yards with a bead sight is because I have seen a lot of missed deer with them. If you decide to just use the bead sight then you must practice and get very comfortable using it, and take your time when taking aim at a deer.
