SKSKID I say...

go for it. I shoot slugs out of my Mossberg for home defence.You wont get the same accuracy you would with a rifled barrel but it aint going to hurt it none.

i do

shoot lots of slugs out of my smooth bore 870,but i have an 18 inch barrel,you might want to make sure of your bore diameter before shooting any slug from a 28 inch barrel with a choke,

i tried being reasonable,i didn't like it, NRA LIFE MEMBER,USMC VETERAN

use rifled slugs in a smooth bore
