Lead is softer than barrel steel, so it'll deform before it will wear the barrel out regardless of the shot size.

If you do have an older thin-wall barrel with a tight choke, the choke can get peened out just like with steel shot...but it'll take many many rounds.
Heck, I know guys that have shot forster-type slugs through their old full-choke guns for years with little or no damage.
