Federal Premium® Vital-Shok® TruBall® Rifled Slug Shotshells 5 5 2 2
powerful and very accurate slugs These slugs are some of the best I ever bought, I was shooting them out of my Benelli nova and had no problem hitting the steel at 100 yards. These are the most accurate slugs I have ever sot out of a smoothbore shotgun. AND, they are extremely affordable. I was EXTREMELY impressed with these slugs! buy these for sure guys! March 17, 2013
True to its claim! A couple of years ago, I was not a believer in slugs, especially in a smoothbore gun. Since I tried these shells, I won't go out withhout them. Very accurate with tight groups. I take them to Ohio every year! I use them with my Remington 1100 20 gauge. October 29, 2012

i bought a rifled shotgun barrel for my Mossberg 500 for deer hunting and i don't to spend a lot of money for sabot slugs. Would these shoot as well in a rifled barrel as sabot's?

A: 
The TRU Ball rifled slugs are intended to use in a SMOOTH BORE shotgun barrel, not a rifle.
It is not recommended to shoot in a rifled barrel.
If you have a shotgun with a rifled barrel, the manufacutrer would advise you to use the Trophy Copper slugs P152 TC.

A: 
This is the great - hot contested question. You've got the pure, by the book people that say NO. But I found a great web review. search for "the box of truth". Retired guy and friend sent 5ea rounds of rifled foster 1oz slugs down range at 50 yards thru an 11-87 fully rifled barrel and smoothbore. Comparison was made regarding remington accutip sabot 5ea thru rifled barrel and smoothbore. obviously the accutips thru smooth bore tumbled. But rifled slugs compared to accutip sabot thru a rifled barrel patterned almost the same. I hate spending $3 a shell and all I shoot is Fed Premium TruBall through my 870 rifled barrel. At 50yds I do well with both sabot accutip and fed TruBall.

I have shot 60+ rounds of rem accutip sabot and 100+ rounds of TruBall.

The biggest thing that is noticeable for me is @ 100yds. The accutips droped 5-6" (+/-) while the TruBall's were off the paper probably at 10". They weigh almost twice as much. So the drop almost 2x's more. One other scientific difference is that the higher velocity sabots do retain more energy down range by 400-600 lbs/ft. However almost all rifled foster slugs retain 1000+ lbs/ft of stopping power @ 100yds.

The retired guys concluded the only noticeable side effect from foster rifled slug thru rifled barrel was excess leading. I agree that my barrel is really, really dirty after 30-50 rounds. Seems to clean easy and I always see the groves when I am done. I'm sort of a rookie, but I just keep scrubbing with copper brush and running cut up rags with rem oil until I start to come clean. I would do this even if I shot sabot. a rifled slug barrel really only has micro-grooving if you ask me.

Lastly I actually wrote into Federal Premium customer email inquires about products and asked, "can I shoot TruBall thru my 870 rifled barrel?" The answer was yes with no conditions, clauses or disclaimers - Just a simple yes you can shoot it. Lead is virtually the softest metal on the planet vs hardened steel barrel. Like I say I'm a rookie when it comes to cleaning but I keep working at it and the groves are always there and symetrical when I look down the barrel when finished.

My personal opinion 75 cents per shell on sale and with rebate vs 2.5 dollars per shell on sale. Other than bullet drop - I have yet to find one really scientific answer to prove the wive's tail of foster slug in rifled barrel.

Ideas?

DO NOT use in rifled barrel. Mfgr warns against it. Sabot slugs in rifled barrels. Rifled slugs in smoothbores.
