Rifled slugs are meant for a smooth barrel shotgun. Using rifled slugs in a deer barrel can cause un-safe barrel pressures. Try some of the sabot slugs on the market. I love them. They are accurate and deadly.
SO I guess my slug barrell isnt for slugs then? LOL
The rifled barrell is meant for slugs to give better velocity and spin.
Slugs out of a smooth barrell is like throwing a knuckle ball.
You better check out your ammo store. Rifled slugs are not the only type of slug you can buy. There are many types of slugs these days and you will find the copper sabots to be very accurate in a rifled barrel. As well, you do not need a rifled slug if you have a rifled barrel... that is what the rifling is for to spin the slug. And yes the rifled slug is made for the smooth bore to start the slug spinning and increase accuracy. (in theory) Accuracy is mediocre at best in a modern shotgun with choke tubes but you can get decent accuracy out of the older shotguns that have fixed chokes.
It would work but may lead to premature barrel wear, especially at the end. With the additional friction, the shot cup (wad) with probably seperate from the shot quicker and you would not have as much distance but more spread. Accuracy is not as important with the shot.
Everyone has different ideas about trophy pictures. Looks around and you will see "long armers," "set behinders," "big cheesers," and "blood covered brutes." I have a few tips to keep your trophy pictures from being laughers or worse yet just plain gross.
#1 Clean it up. Try to avoid bullet holes, gut pile, mass amounts of blood, and the tongue sticking out. You don't want your big buck to look like a angry 1st grader with his tongue out or a MMA fighter during the 3 round.
#2 Long arming...
