I agree with Robo about the shooting slugs. I have a NEF Pardner Tracker II single shot with a rifled barrel. I shoot Remington Coppersolids and Hornady SST which are both sabot slugs. For my NEF pump I use regular cheap slugs because it has a smooth bore.
I however have been taught my whole life that you should never shoot any kind of shot through a rifled barrel. Why? The shot bounces down the barrel and especially in the case of steel shot can damage the rifling. You probably won't damage the rifling with lead shot but I still won't do it. Why chance it. I would rather buy another barrel or in my case another gun than to fire whatever through my gun and end up with a gun that won't hit the broadside of a barn from 10 paces. I bought the NEF pump so I wouldn't have to worry about it with the rifled shotgun. Also, a rifled barrel has little or no choke so you won't be able to get a decent pattern anyway. This is of course my own two cents and you can take it for what it's worth.
