    Can I use Slugger Rifled Slugs in my 870?

    Someone gave me 25 rounds for my 870 tactical. Can I fire them in my smooth bore? I have already orderd a bunch of different Brenneke slugs for it. Someone told me I could use them, but i would rather get another opinion.

    Generally speaking, in a smoothbore shotgun you use rifled slugs.

    Rifled slugs are for smooth bore barrels.

    Sabot slugs are for rifled barrels.
