Does the range improve with those? One or the other?

"Rifled" slugs really don't do anything (spin that is).  If you're wanting to spin the slug and/or sabot, get either a rifled barrel or a rifled choke tube. O0

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Anything that spins like that is more accurate and will go farther in in a straight line. O0  It helps stabilize it and fly where you want it to go.

Generally smooth-bore shotguns have an effective range of about 50 yds.  With a rifled barrel or choke tube, 100-200 yd shots are not uncommon and completely do-able. O0  With as heavy as a slug is though, there's quite a bit of drop to it.  If you're going to shoot those distances, you really need to practice a lot to know how the slug is going to perform.
