I have remember hearing horror stories about slugs and full chokes.  Stuff like the slug taking the choke with it.

I’ve had good luck using an extended rifled choke tube with Winchester Standard Velocity Sabot Slugs, I used this setup for years on my Savage Bolt Action 12 Gauge with a 1.5-5 power shotgun scope, very accurate setup. A few of my hunting partners have always used the rifled slugs in smooth bore barrels and adjustable rifle sights without any problems. Whatever you use it’s always a good idea to have some kind of adjustable sight to dial it in. But to answer your question, Cylinder Bore Choke would be the right choice, Good Luck!

I would contact the gun manufacturer and see if they may have some helpful input.  Be safe!
