    It would also be good for trap and sporting clays

    I have shot foster slugs from a 20ga mossberg 485b with a full choke and they work just fine. Pretty accurate too. GREAT bird gun. Holds a tight enough pattern at 60 yards to drop a small pest bird stone dead with a puff of feathers. Works great on turkeys too!

    If it is legal in your state you could use buck shot.

    Is there a particular brand of slugs to use? Type?

    Got lots of deer.
    I know those old Winchesters well. Killed my last Turkey with one and a stout turkey load. I would do a little test before you try a slug. See is a dime will fit in the barrel as a gauge. Many of these old timers had the choke already shot out of them before we ever got them. I have owned many that was closer to an improved a than the full choke they started life as. So why not do a little measuring. I think many of them already have a history with slugs and that can open up the full choke wedge. Especially if they come from a state where deer hunting is done with slugs and has been for years.
