Shotgun design is based on fairly low pressures. Few loads hit 20,000,if any, centerfire rifle loads oft run over 50,000.

Reducing the slug weight might aid velocity, but with a serious loss in momentum and penetration.

And,after around 40 years of shooting standard slugs,I've never seen a deer able to tell the difference between the 2 3/4 slug and its higher priced,harder kicking 3 inch relative...
