I’ve bought some rifled slugs but I have a rifled barrel 12ga. I’ve never had a rifled shotgun so I wasn’t sure if I can use the rifled slugs in the rifled barrel.
looking for recommendations.

As I read. “ you could do it but recommended not to”
So thought I’d try to get some first hand experience.

I shoot rifled slugs through my 1187 with rifled barrel all the time. Probably put 1000 rounds through it, easy.
And it is a tack driver.

They say don’t do it because accuracy at longer ranges will suffer. If you are under 100 yards, you probably won’t notice much of a difference. At least that’s what I was told when I was trying to decide on a barrel type.

You can shoot them. The reason they aren’t recommended, is the soft lead of the slug really leads up the barrel.
