Rifled slugs shot in a rifled barrel

I just got a new Savage model 220 20 gauge which has a rifled barrel. I was told by a salesman not to shoot cheap rifled slugs in the gun. I will shoot high end slugs but I wanted to buy some cheapy ones to play around with. The saleman says I will foul my barrel badly with lead. Is this true?

Re: Rifled slugs shot in a rifled barrel

Thats true dont do it. I dont think they will shoot well enough any how. I only fire maybe 5 slugs through my shotgun every year. You have to shoot the sabots that what your gun was designed for. I use the Lightfields in my wifes 20g they shoot great and are around 11$ a box. Im guessing your gun is a bolt? I solved the issue you are having by owning 2 diffrent barrels for my 1187 one for sitting and one for walking one rifled one smoth bore.
