I have never even fired a shot from my Mossy 835 with the scoped cantelever rifled barrel that came with it. Nice Nikon scope and all, I just haven't gotten around to it yet. I've used the turkey barrel only so far (2 birds for 2 shots this past season in the field.) For slugs, I still love my smoothbore 870 Express. Its not a long range gun, but when I use it, I don't expect to take long range shots either.

Love my 870 cantilever. I put a Boyd's thumbhole stock on it and it does the trick. That said, if I were to buy a dedicated slug gun today, I'd be looking at the H&R USH. You also asked about 12 or 20ga. My 870 is a 12 and my son's is exactly like it, though in 20. Either one is just fine. With today's sabots, I'd probably go with the 20ga.

You can buy the Ithaca 37 Deerslayer II or III from Ithaca today. Both come with rifled barrels. Beautiful guns, and accurate as all get out.

My Browning A bolt gives me consistent ragged one holers at 100 yards.

My backup slug gun is a NEF single shot rifled 20ga and shoots slightly better at 100 yds.

The Browning is going for bargain prices considering what you get

The H&R is not front end heavy....It carrys a solid walnut laminant stock with a steel weight inside that provides good balance and less recoil.......

H&R Ultra Slug for me. It will shoot dead on. It may be a little heavy and it is a single shot, but you have to love the accuracy. One should treat a gun shot as an archery shot. There "should" not be a need for a second shot, if you are taking the right shot..
