loading slugs with no wad or filler

1st I have to say I have never loaded shotgun ammo.
so here is my question

is there any reason to be using a wad or similar in a slug gun?
I am building a "shotgun" bolt action rifle using a rifled shotgun barrel
I have loaded lost of pistol ammo and I cant see why shotgun solids cant be loaded in the same manner as pistol loads. why all the wads and stuff.
thanks in advance for the education
