Question About Excessive Smoke/Fouling

So I picked up a new UTAS UTS-15 shotgun yesterday from the store, love the gun have only one complaint really. CREE still hasn't delivered the laser/light combo to UTAS so I am waiting for that, other than that I am happy with the gun.

Sorry I don't have any pictures right now, I meant to take some but got caught up in shooting the gun.

I ran about 25 rounds in the gun today and my shoulder is learning how to take 14 consecutive slugs. Something that was pointed out to me was that my weapon was making a large cloud of smoke and the front of my weapon had turned greyish. I was shooting Federal Rifled Slugs, 12 2.75" 1oz today and the fellow next to me had a shotgun as well, using the exact same rounds and his weapon did not seem to exhibit this excessive smoke. I knew that slugs tended to foul up a shotgun a bit more than buckshot, but this seemed rather excessive. I wasn't sure if it was because the gun was brand new or because of something wrong with the ammunition I was using. I was hoping someone could answer that for me.
