Can standard Foster slugs be fired through a rifled bore?

I just bought a new Rem 870 with rifled 23 inch cantilever barrel. Just checking to see if I can shoot the standard foster style slug through these, or are they sabot only?

Thanks

Stick with sabots. One can fire older style slugs throgh a rifled bore, but accuracy is compromised and the bore leads up fast.
