Note: Spire tip slugs placed within a tube magazine (i.e. pump or auto shotguns) must not have any protrusions from the crimp. Although it is unlikely, it is possible that the tip of the protruding slug could impact the primer of the shell in front of it. This could be extremely dangerous. A pointed slug should be covered with a cardboard or plastic disc or even fold crimped. Failing that, the shotgunner should only place one slug at a time in a tube magazine.

New! LBC BluForce Sabot Slug
12ga Saboted Slug

The LBC BluForce Sabot’s exterior is etched with distinctive bore seal rings. This unique design creats a more efficient seal. Above the gas seal are tubed, energy damping crush-sections that absorb the abrupt energy of setback, producing a stabilized projectile. The result is higher velocity and greater shot-to-shot consistency.

The .650" diameter slug, like all Dangerous Game Slugs, is engineered for in-flight stability and maximum impact at the target.

Uncompressed outside diameter of the sabot is specified for modern rifled barrels at a land-following .725".

With design cues taken from the military’s depleted-uranium tank killer rounds, the LBC BluForce Sabot Slug offers unparalleled penetration, knockdown power and down-range accuracty in a lead slug.
