Foster slugs made for smooth bore barrels are made of soft lead so not to damage barrel and as a results are poor for penetration .
For rifle barrels sabots offer a variety of slug from soft to deep penetrators, those that prnrtrate the best basically use copper pistol bullets in either the 50 caliber or 45, hollow points are made to expand hence less peneration. Go to mfg site for penetration results

For smooth bores-

Brenneke Black Magic, Classic Magnum, or K.O. They are made for large game and are what I have seen the most of in shotguns in Alaska.

For sabots, Brennekes again with their copper slug or whomever is using a Barnes sabot. Both of them penetrate like crazy.

Would concur on the Brenneke Black Magic slugs.
