A slug barrel is Cyl-Bor or Imp Cyl, good for buck-shot or slug, A Forster slug can be used in most choked shot guns.

I use Improved Cylinder when shooting rifled slugs. You can pattern test your buckshot with different chokes.

Mose boxes of rifled slugs recommended a choke, usually a improved cylinder.

Cylinder/Improved Cylinder-Slugs
Improved Cylinder/Modified-Buckshot
Pattern and take some shots with each type to get a general idea of whats best, each gun patterns differently.

I'm sorry folks, I grew up in Massachusetts where deer hunting was shotgun only. We used slugs, and if possible use an improved cylinder if you have the option of changing chokes. As far as buckshot? In 30 years I've never used it, it's good for maybe a 20 yard shot at best. It's been my experience that people that use buckshot are rank amateurs, do deer drives, or sit on the tail gate of their pick up truck drinking beer while others drive deer towards them. Like I say I've been hunting for 30 years, and one truth I know, I do not know anybody who has CLEANLY killed a deer with buckshot, they have wounded more deer than harvested. Be an ethical and moral hunter, stick with slugs, you'll get a cleaner kill and it's more ethical. Leave buckshot for the weekend hunters.
