for sabots it need to have a rifled barrel....for smooth bore.... I use a standard Federal rifled slug....personal preference for me....all slugs shoot different in guns for the most part....just experiment and see what shoots best in yours

For years I used Hastings Laser Slugs and Federal, but my new favorite which I discovered last year is D Dupleks. I stocked up on them as they are getting harder to find, the Dupo 28 and Monolit 28 are my favorites and devastating on hogs and deer. They shoot 2-3" groups @ 100yds easy and several online ammo suppliers still have them.
