    Should not be a problem so long as you are not using a turkey hunter's extra full choke.

    Use foster type rifled slugs, these are made to be fired from a smoothbore barrel, firing these with a vent rib is not an issue what so ever. I use a modified choke, with slugs in my smoothbore barrels.

    Sabot slugs are meant for rifled barrels. Rifled slugs for smoothbore.
