Rifled vs. Smoothbore?
I think most here would say rifled. Unless you have an emotional reason to use the smoothbore.

Rifled barrels just tend to be much more accurate. Plus with a sabot, range is better too.

i have a buch of slugs for my smoothbore can i shoot them in the Rifled barrel
I wouldn't shoot your old slugs that are meant for smoothbore out of your rifled barrel, I have heard it will load up the rifling in your barrel. Not a risk worth taking if you ask me. There's a reason both types of slugs are produced.
