Since most modern shotgun shells use a shot cup, I doubt very much if rifling is going to "spread out" the shot at all. Probably just the opposite. The fact that the "Governor" is a SD firearm meant for very close range(measured in feet, not yards), having the shot spread a tad is probably a good thing. If one wanted a solid shot column, they would be just as well off to use .45 colt.
