question 2 the weapon is a win 1300 combo with 2 3/4" - 3"
should rifled slugs be used in a rifled barrel? what the best shot for sporting clays and what type of choke for clay birds?

Rifled barrels are made for sabot slugs. They are generally more accurate than smoothbores. They usually work poorly with rifled slugs. Smoothbores work best with rifled slugs, the Brenneke types work well in most of them. Sabot slugs work poorly in smoothbores, mostly because without the spin imparted by the rifling, the sabots do not come off consistantly, and accuracy suffers. Do not use shot, or buckshot, in the rifled barrel. The spin will spoil the patterns.
The choke you use for clay sports will depend upon which game you shoot. As far as shot size for sporting clays, #8's will break any sporting clays target. The rabbit target presented on edge, is the hardest target to break, but at most ranges it will break well with a 28 ga., and #8's, and a modified choke.
