I just recently got my first gun--Remington Model 870 Wingmaster. I bought some sabot slugs to try out, at the time I never knew the difference between rifled and sabot slugs. I did have the inclination to not shoot a slug through a tight choke, but I didn't pay enough attention to what I was doing, so I ended up shooting 3 slugs through it, forgetting to change to the improved cylinder. I was pretty angry at myself for doing such a stupid thing, but I've learned it well now, to always have in mind which choke I have installed.

I kept worrying about if I damaged the gun, but I wasn't sure what to do to check for it. Then I tried putting a ruler along the barrel by the choke. It turns out that just behind the choke-tube there is a slight bulge. So my question is: what should I do with it? My first thought is to order another barrel for it. (about $300)
