My main piece is a Mossberg 500. I just ordered a 24" barrel with some chokes for spring Turkey season, but I'm wondering whether it would be worth it to get a rifled 24" also to run slugs. I'll be going after wild boar in between the turkey seasons. Is the added spin that big of factor in accuracy? Is it worth getting a scoped barrel, or will iron sights do? Just wonderin'

The new barrel arrived yesterday, and it looks pretty good. I'll have to pass on your offer for now, what disposable income I have is needed elsewhere for the next couple months.

It's not going anywhere.As far as slugs go I prefer and recommend Brenneke slugs for a smooth bore.Accurate and hit very hard out to 100 yards.Karl
