I wouldn't shoot rifled slugs through a rifled barrel. You can but they wont be very accurate. They have a tendancy to jump all over when you do that. Stick with sabots. I shoot the Remington CoreLokt Ultra sabots and have had great success with them.

Rem. copper solids (sabot) in my rifled barrel. and Win. Super X, in my smoothbore with a rifled choke tube. I get better accuracy with the tube, and an extra 25 yds.

Sabot slugs hands down when it comes down to what to use in a riffled barrel not to mention this is whats recomended by most manufactures.

I cannot stress this enough...call your gun manufacturer and ask to speak with one of the technical gunsmiths.

These guys are paid to shoot these guns, to ensure proper handling and accuracy. Trust me, they know which ammunition shoots best from their guns. And sure, 5/1000 guns may shoot a different brand better, but the other 99.5% of the guns shoot a particular brand the best.

When I purchased a new gun last Spring, I quickly downsized my "arsenal" to 3 different slugs, the Federal Barnes Expander, the Winchester Golds, and the Brennekes. As the techs, who I had spoken with multiple times (probably ~2hrs of phone conversations) had assured me, the Federals gave me consistent 3-shot 2" groups at 100 yards.

Call the gun manufacturer and ask!!

That will be your little secret.
