Improved Cylinder my friend. I wouldnt dare shoot a slug through a full or even modified choke.
Correct. Don't shoot rifled slugs through a modified or full choke barrel. It's too constricting and can have adverse affects. It may damage the choke tube and\or barrel. Improved cylinder or cylinder bore is best. Don't fire sabots unless you are using a rifled barrel either. Since you are following up with a round of buckshot, go with the improved cylinder. You can try modified, but be aware that over time it may open up the choke some and lodge the threads of the tube into the barrel.
Interesting tidbit here as well: Remington claims that it is safe to fire their "slugger" round through any standard choke tube or barrel ( no extra full or turkey chokes! ). Their round is made of a soft conical lead that is able to swage down to narrow bore diameters. Their rounds are the exception to the rule, IMHO.
