Shooting shot through a rifled slug barrel will not damage anything, but it WILL lead the barrel very badly.

In addition, the "swirling" imparted by the rifling, in addition to the deformation to the shot, will cause non-existent patterning, often causing a "dough nut hole".

You're better to NOT shoot shot through a rifled barrel.

Shooting rifled slugs through a Modified barrel is quite safe.

You can shoot ANY standard rifled slug through ANY standard shotgun choke from Cylinder to Full.

Where things get chancy is when you go to more than Full specialty chokes.

Most of the people who shoot slugs for longer range accuracy typically do use tighter chokes, so your Modified should work well.
