I've never seen a smooth bore anywhere close to consistent at that range.

Be sure everything is mounted correctly. Sight in at 50 yds. Wait a few minutes between shots. Don't shoot too much. Slugs can beat you up pretty good and a lot of guys flinch after a few slugs and just waste money by shooting more.
