If your going to shoot modern sabots I would go for the 20 ga, more than enough to kill deer and the recoil will be slightly less than a 12 ga. Ballistics for a modern 20 are very close to a magnum inline muzzle loader. Even close to a 45/70 centerfire.

I've got a 20ga Pro Hunter. Haven't shot anything with it yet. But it is accurate.

I've only shot 12ga, but if I were to buy a new slug gun, it would be a 20ga.

Its your call, but IMO there is no reason to NEED a 12ga slug over a 20ga.
