Without a rifled barrel I would us an Improved cylinder with rifled slugs. I think a modified choke will work, but an improved is what most manufacturers recommend for slugs.

You might want to get a low-power scope too. Typically a shot gun does not offer much of an open site. Cabelas has one for about $50 especially for shotgun slug hunting.

A rifled choke tube worked great in my 870!
