You need to offer up a little more info, like are you using a smooth bore or fully rifled barrel, or a smooth barrel with a rifled choke?????

smoothe bore modified barrel can shoot rifled slugs but not sabot slugs.

You will be able to use rifled slugs in it, just don't put in a tighter choke. If you're just using a bead sight then get out and practice with it, and know your limitations.

yes, they are fairly cheep so find which one your barrel likes. Your max range with a smoothe barrel will be around 50-60 yds and knowing where the slugs are on paper. Breneke (spell?) is one to check out.

Unhappy I've been trying to

I've been trying to get a good piructe of them, but Blake Deer has a lot on his platter right now, and we can't seem to arrange a time. Blake, if you are reading this, you should probably know that I named a deer after you. Sorry.
