Please forgive this thread if it rehashes a dead topic. I can't find a direct answer online. I'd like to load foster slugs in my Mossberg Maverick 12 gauge for home defense. Factory barrel is simply the smooth bore with modified choke that came from Mossberg. When you shoot slugs, doesn't the slug grip the bore like a bullet? And when the slug reaches the choke tube, wouldn't it send the barrel down range with it or else explode the barrel like a mini Hiroshima? I'm thinking I'd need a slug barrel? Is this accurate? Any words of wisdom are appreciated.
