You can shoot a rifled slug out of a smooth bored barrels only. You want to have an improved or modified choke on when shooting a rifled slug. It helps the rotaion and accuracy of the slug. Never use a rifled slug in a rilfed barrel. You could destroy your gun if the rilfing in the gun and slug do not match. This is not a gamlbe I am willing to take with any of my guns.

Can rifled slugs be fired through a Remington Model 10 shotgun?

Unless your barrel has been fitted with a poly-choke (adjustable by turning) there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to shoot rifled slugs in your Model 10 Remington shotgun. Don't expect to see tack-driving accuracy with so-called rifled slugs though. Start out shooting at paper plates from 50 yards as you'll need to find out where to hold the front bead in relation to the target (paper plate).

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.

Can you shoot rifled slugs through a smooth bore barrel?

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.

Can you shoot new slugs in a JC Higgins Model 60?

I have a 60 with a poly-choke, and the manual says slugs can be shot out of it, as long as you open the choke to "cylinder". By "newer slugs" do you mean sabots? I'd be very careful. I'm pretty sure sabots for shotguns were not in existence when the JC HIggins model 60 was first manufactured (mid 1950's), so it's probably an "unknown". A rifled slug will spin even when fired out of a smootbore (your model 60 has a smoothbore). Sabots require a rifled barrel to create spin.(your model 60 does NOT have a rifled barrel). If it were me, I would NOT chance shooting sabots out of a model 60. I checked my manual for my Model 60. Page 11, at the bottom, reads "The Model 60 handles lightest trap, skeet loads...heavy field loads...2 3/4 magnums...even rifled slugs." Page 5, at the bottom, reads "With the CHOKE CONTROL in 'Cylinder' position that Model 60 becomes the most accurate shotgun on the market for shooting rifled slugs." A word of caution: I don't know if today's rifled slugs are the same as the 1950's rifled slugs. So, if you choose to shoot slugs out of your 60, do so at your own risk. I use my model 60 for shooting lead shotgun shells at pheasants. A great, light-kicking gun. Be safe. take1a
