In theory, yes. A slug is softer than the steel of the barrel, so any give should be in the slug, not your barrel. Choke wise, bigger is better most of the time, so use a modified or larger tube for the least amount of slug crush, and more accuracy if you have one with the RemChoke system.
If it ain't got papers, deport it.
