Yes, that is why they rifled the barrel.
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.
You probably could, but if you were trying to get the best out of your rifled barrel I would think that going to a saboted slug would give better performance. In general, rifled slugs are intended to go through a smooth bore and the twist rates of a rifled slug against a rifled barrel may not agree.
Rifled slugs can be shot however the rifling on the slug can grind off and fill in the rifling in the barrel. A normal slug or a saboted is best

That is correct.
A rifled slug- yes.
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.
You can but it won't be as accurate as a rifled slug It will tumble instead of spin
any kind will kill a deer but if you have a smooth barrel than u need smooth slugs if you have a rifled barrel you need a rifled slug
Look inside. If it has lands and grooves, it is rifled. If it does not, it is smooth
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.
Yesbut check for a rifled barrel rifled barrels will make a slug more accurate
yes a rifled shotgun barrel or smooth shotgun barrel
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.
no you cannot. sabot slugs are made for rifled barrels. I would buy a rifled slug barrel.
They don't make one for that gun.
Rifled Slugs are meant for smooth bore barrels mainly. The rifled slug is made of lead and so if you shoot it through a rifled barrel the lead touching the rifling will cause some of the lead to peal off and can build up over a very short period of time. Also the facft that you are shooting a rifled slug through a rifled barrel would cause the bullet to become extremely unstable and inaccurate. Rifle barrel sare meant for sabot slugs (slugs with a plastic wad surrounding the outside). You should eb good though to shoot a rifled slug out of your barrel with a mod choke tube, but smooth bore deer barrels are ideal.M.I.
Firing lead shot through a slug barrel will not damage the barrel. The rifling will distort the shot pattern and you will get less than desireable results.
a slug is normally use in a shot gun and they are not rifled a gun with a rifled barrel should shoot a Shell that is the same caliber as the gun.
I have one that I would sell.
In the most general of terms, slug barrels are rifled and regular barrels are smooth bore. Both are capable of shooting slugs.
Yes, but, it is an exercise without a point.
i have a 12 gauge unrifled barrel 500 model.what type of slug do you reccomend for the mossberg
