I would be a bit hesitant to try and shoot an animal weighing more than 120 pounds with a Foster slug, unless I knew for a fact that the brand in question holds together.
And even then, I'd find myself wishing for a different slug.
that the streamlined sabot shell has some rattle effect in a smootbore barrel, especially towards the muzzle end. The smooth bore simply will not impart any spin to the sabot and that is what makes sabot slugs have better accuracy.
Couldn't give you a recommendation on which is better, but I've used Remington and Winchester 2 3/4" slugs with similar results, which is placing a big hole where I want it, or making a gallon can of chili sauce explode. One of the ranges I go to lets you sight in shotgun slugs at the 25 yd pistol bench.

I don't even consider any of the soft slugs for serious work, which is what most others are....the exception of Dixie slugs, which you should best steer clear of for your smooth bore, except in the Dixie TRI-BALL which is a pretty good hammer. Paul I know it can be done, albeit, less accurately, but I'm assuming that the streamlined sabot shell has some rattle effect in a smootbore barrel, especially towards the muzzle end.
You'd be better off with a .380 than any mass-produced .410 slug on the market.
