    I recently purchased a factory rifled slug barrel for my Beretta 390. Anyone had any experience with slug performance/accuracy using this set up?

    Purchase some different Sabot type slugs and go to the range and see which shoot best. DO NOT use the Foster type slug in rifled barrels, it's a waste of time.

    Not to mention the foster type slugs will foul your rifling something terrible. Slugs in general have some terrible ballistics. There are newer type sabots available with better energy and trajectory. The newer winchester supreme sabots I shoot are awesome. Remington makes a green tipped sabot that has very good ballistics as well but are more expensive. I shot a deer at 20 yards with standard remington sabots that didn't go through other side of the rib cage. Last year I shot a deer at 120 yards with the new winchester sabots that blew through both front shoulders and left a big exit on the far side. They have come a long ways.
