The foster type slugs have a rifeling pattern on the outside of the slug which upon entering the air stream (theoritically) cause the slug to spin up thereby increasing it stability. The fins on the 120mm tank rounds have a cant angle cut on them for the same reason and it works real good in that application. The sabot slugs work best with some spin imparted via a rifled "choke tube" or a rifled barrel.
