I know rifled slugs are the correct slugs to use but I accidentally purchased some of these from a online site that will not accept returns. The tac 14 is a "cylinder bore." Thanks.

A cylinder choke tube is standard on Remington 870 Police 12 gauge shotguns. I wouldn’t worry about the Sabot destroying or damaging the cylinder choke of your barrel.
A Sabot round will perform optimally from a rifled barrel. I have a few boxes of 20 gauge BRI Sabot rounds that I shot at 25 yards from a Browning BPS 20 gauge cylinder choke and the accuracy was fine.

You will only destroy your wallet if U continue to buy Hornady sabot slugs. Im sure the two legged targets you intend to use your Tac-14 against wont notice the difference if U use plain slugs instead

Yes, no need for those fancy boutique style shotgun shells when regular lead slugs will work perfectly fine.
