Who produces a decent Slug Gun (meaning a shotgun with a rifled barrel)?

I checked the Mossberg web site, but didn't see one by them.

Can you use the same slugs in both a slug gun as a smooth bore shotgun or must special slugs be used with a rifled barrel?

The rifled slug barrels are for use with sabot slugs ONLY.... NO standard slugs, no bird and no buck shot.

I have a Mossberg 835 with a rifled slug barrel and cantilever scope base. It will do 2.5 inch groups at 100 yards with my 4 power scope. It likes Winchester super X sabots.

I checked MidwayUSA and the "sabot slugs" seem to run $2-$3 per round. A bit expensive for a plinking round as I tend to go through 100 rounds or so each range visit.

The fully-rifled shotgun barrels are geared towards deer hunters. They are designed for extreme accuracy, and aren't really the choice of someone defending their home or plinking.
