From the Mossberg website:

Can I fire slugs through my 935™ or 835® vent rib, Accu-Mag® choke tube barrel?

No, 935™ and 835® field barrels (those with a ventilated rib) are "overbored," and the extra inside diameter may cause the projectile to "wobble" producing unreliable accuracy. A projectile may wedge inside the barrel causing an obstruction. Obstructions of any kind can cause damage to the firearm resulting in damage to the barrel and/or personal injury to you or those around you. Dedicated fully rifled slug barrels are available for the 935™ and 835® models. Other 935™ and 835® Accu-Mag® choke tube notes: Buckshot and steel-shot loads are not recommended for use with an extra full turkey tube installed.
OK, yeah, I forgot about the over bored Mossberg barrels. I should have said, 'the vast majority' of modern shotgun barrels.
