is it or is it not ok to shoot slugs out of a none rifled shotgun?

Thanks.

yes

rifled slugs are good to go
sabot slugs dont really gain you anything out of a smoothbore and do better in a rifled barrel

You can, you just don't get the stabilization advantage you would in a rifled barrel.

I doubt it does much. I've seen smooth bore slugs make some pretty dam good groups.

Don't forget to consider your choke.

depending on what the gun is, you can always get a spare barrel - I did for my Mossy 500 :D
