    No, as the rifling on the slug allows space for compression as the slug squeezes past the choke.
    Also, most slugs are slightly under bore diameter, but I think some makers are now producing fatter slugs to improve accuracy.

      I agree with 99, most slugs are a lot softer metal than the steel of the barrel so the slug gives (compresses) when it passes through the choke.

        No, not at all.

          Right on guys! Also, remember that even if wear WERE a problem, an improved cylinder is an even larger diameter choke than a modified or full. You can shoot slugs safely in a full choke.
