That is true-I talked to the staff at Gander Mtn. this week and asked them that exact question. They stated that you use sabots in a rifled barrel and rifled slugs in a smooth barrel.

not really true, you can shoot brenneke green lightning out of a rifled barrel with very little fouling and good accuracy.

they have a protective coating on them

TRY THIS:

While it is true that you need to use a rifled barrel for sabot slugs, it is also true that you can use "rifled" slugs, aka Foster slugs, in a rifled barrel. Yes, you will have some leading to deal with, but the Foster slug was originally intended to be used with rifled barrels. A rifled slug in a rifled barrel will be more accurate than using that slug in a smooth bore.

Here is an article on the subject with test results. http://www.theboxotruth.com/docs/bot46.htm
