Rifled barrels are meant for sabot slugs. Rifled slugs are fired from smoothbore barrels.
12 g sabot slugs. Rifled slugs are for smoothbore barrels.
Shooting rifled slugs is the ONLY way to shoot thru a smoothbore for deer. If you shoot sabot slugs thru a smoothbore, it will not spin and therefore not be accurate. For accuracy, the slug must spin out of the barrel. Either shoot a rifled slug thru a smooth barrel, or shoot a saboted slug thru a rifled barrel.
Yes. Rifled slugs are intended to be fired through a smoothbore barrel. Sabot slugs are intended to be fired through rifled barrels.
Yes, but expect poor accuracy. Rule of thumb- EITHER the projectile OR the bore should be rifled. Rifled slugs do poorly in a rifled barrel, sabots do poorly in a smoothbore.
Although they weren't as accurate, smoothbore "muskets" were easier, faster to reload than a rifled barrel. Less constriction in the barrel without rifling.
Modified frequently gives the best accuracy, but you can use any standard choke. No Extra Full chokes. Rifled slugs use a smoothbore- Sabot slugs a rifled barrel.
Adj. 1. rifled - of a firearm; having rifling or internal spiral grooves inside the barrel smoothbore, unrifled - of a firearm; not having rifling or internal spiral grooves inside the barrel
A rifled slug can be fired from a smoothbore barrel with relative accuracy to about 100 yards. By relative accuracy, I mean that shots can be held in a 5 inch circle. That is about the size of the target zone on a deer. For a rifled barrel, rifled slugs should NOT be used, but sabot slugs can be.
A smoothbore is cheaper and works just as well when using regular shot. A rifled shotgun barrel only helps if you are going to be firing slugs, but if you are it improves performance considerably, giving the slug near-rifle accuracy. If you can afford it and plan to be using slugs the rifled barrel can be well worth it and gives you much more versitility.
probably not, historicly shotguns are smoothbore if you shoot a slug, THAT would be rifled.
Assuming you mean the Remington 870 shotgun, with a scope- is your barrel rifled? If so, sabot slugs are generally the most accurate. If smoothbore, then rifled slugs will be most accurate.
The outside dimension of a barrel is simply the diameter. The traditional inside measurement of a rifled barrel is caliber and the traditional inside measurement of a smoothbore (shotgun) barrel is gauge. Strictly speaking, smoothbore gauges are not diameters. Gauge number is the number of round balls fitting the bore that can be made from a pound of lead.

Yes. Rifled slugs are intended for smoothbore barrels (abot slugs aer for RIFLED barrels). Best accuracy with rifled slugs is USUALLY a modified choke, but can be safely fired thru any choke less than EXTRA full choke.
Yes, rifled slugs will not damage a rifled barrel. Rifled slugs were originally designed so that they would shoot through any size choke and cause damage to the barrel.
An air RIFLE that shoots pellets through a rifled barrel will leave identifying marks on a fired pellet. A smoothbore air GUN that shoots BBs usually will not.
Yes, that is why they rifled the barrel.
Answer the glenfield by marlin is compatible with marlin 120 12ga barrels are available for the 120 the only difference is the stocks wich are also interchangable the 120 is higher quality I love my glenfieldThat model is obsolete and you are not going to find a slug barrel. If you must use slugs, you can have the existing barrel modified to accept interchangeable choke tubes and use a rifled tube when shooting slugs.
Neither barrel is rifled.
You look down the barrel and if it is swirled it is a rifled barrel and if it is not swirled it is a smooth bore
A 90 mm rifled cannon because the inside is grooved.
A shotgun barrel with rifling.
