I've done a fair amount of research on this one, and can still not come up with a definitive answer. I'm a poor college student getting ready for the upcoming deer season. I have an 870 express and I'm debating what to shoot. I do not have the money to go and purchase a rifle or even a slug barrel unfortunately. I was wondering, is it safe/possible to shoot sabot slugs from a smoothbore 870 with an extended rifled choke. From what I can tell I'll be ok, but it never hurts to get an opinion from experienced hunters as yourself. My other option is to shoot regular slugs out from my smoothbore 870 with an IC choke.
Let me know what you think, thanks!
