LBC Sabot Slug 12ga (25/pak)
The LBC Sabot's segmented carrier design incorporates a shock-absorbing cushion section and a multiple-point gas seal system. This creates a more efficient seal, improving load velocity and consistency, which translates into superior long-range accuracy.
Energy damping crush-sections absorb setback forces, enabling the projectile to stabilize earlier in the propulsion cycle. The DGS projectile is engineered for in-flight stability and maximum penetration. Limited Bore Contact technology reduces surface area resistance for higher velocities at lower pressures. Can be used in both rifled and non-rifled shotguns.
Complete Loading instructions and data for the LBC Sabot slugs is found in BP's Slug Manual.

Data Note: In many of our published loads, including loads in the Slug Manual, the LBC BluForce Sabot is referred to as a "7/8oz. slug." This is still the same current #0721610 LBC Sabot Slug. The most recent production of this slug is produced in a red sabot/carrier.
WARNINGS: When loading slug components with an inherent gas seal, the entire slug component must be nudged down with your reloading press' rammer tube. Many loaders complain that they don't have enough room for a crimp. This tells us that the reloader is NOT pushing down on the slug prior to crimping and thus not properly seating the slug on the powder. Depending on your loading tool, these loads may require a series of nudges to allow the powder to enter and fill the concave (cupped) plastic gas seal. If you don't do this, then you'll get the "no-fit" problem or a failed load when the powder refuses to fully ignite. Burned or punctured gas seals is almost always a result of this user error.
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. Verify no slug, regardless of type, protrudes past the top of a hull.
