Not sure yet. My first shotgun so I'm still getting the feel of what I need. I don't really want to buy a rifled barrel because Ill only hunt with it once a year. The rest of the time will just be target shooting and clays. Just trying to pick up a little edge is all.

What are you using for slugs ? I have a winchester with a smooth bore barrel and it shoots the remington sluggers best of about 6 brands I have tried

Or improve accuracy even more and get a fully rifled barrel. My NEF Pardner single shot has a fully rifled bull barrel and its been known to take down deer at 200 yards.
