It is recommended that non-saboted slugs be shot in smooth bore barrels. In this case, the slug is rifled which causes it to spin as it travels the length of the barrel.
The saboted slugs work best in rifled barrels. In this case the rifling of the barrel causes the smooth sided, saboted slug to spin.
Will it hurt anything to shoot a saboted slug in a smooth bore? Probably not, but likley could not hit a bull in the butt with a base fiddle. It is the spin of the projectile that produces accuracy.
Do not shoot rifled slugs in a rifle barrel!
