Rifled slugs in a rifled barrel?

Let me start off by saying that I know that it is not recommended to shoot rifled slugs in a rifled barrel but one day I was sighting in a friends 870 slug gun (rifled barrel with cantilever scope mount) and after I got her dialed in he wanted me to "try" a couple Winchester rifled slugs. They shot more accurate at 100yds than anything else we shot. They put 2 touching at 100 yds... My question is: Will shooting rifled slugs in a rifled barrel do any damage to the gun? I really don't care about lead deposits because I shoot so infrequently and don't mind periodic cleaning if it means good accuracy at less than half the price...
