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.

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.

|Best setup by far for the Diablo 12g. Tight fit and easiest to load over anything else by far.|

|Great accurate all in one slug||12/24/2021|
|I loaded these in 2 3/4in shells to moderate velocity and ran them through a Mossberg 500 tatical ghost ring gun smoothbore. I started at 25 yards, backed up to 50, then 75 before going to 100 to be sure they hit backstop. Bench rested and just shot at a small clump of grass-but that said I could spot my shots and couldnt shoot my 44mag rifle any better. Just wish I could go hog hunting locally. My regular slug will be the bigger brother DGS slug again to moderate velocity.|

|Best Slug Ever||12/3/2020|
|I saw this slug tested on the TAOFLEDERMAUS website on YouTube. I was impressed and decided to try them myself. Got great accuracy from 50 yds out of my Mossberg Maveric 88 with a rifled barrel. 5o yd. shot during deer season put meat on the table. I couldnt be happier!|

|I Wanted something that was easy to load and accurate! I could not be more happy this is the best slug Ive ever shot! Hits like a sledgehammer! And dead accurate out to a few hundred yards! This will always be my go to hunting round! From deer to coyote! In a 3 inch rio or 2-3/4 Fiocchi! Roll crimp|

|Last year I discovered these slugs after season was over and as my previous review states they are incredibly accurate in my Ultra Slug Hunter. I was able to shoot a deer with them this year and found them to be the most deveatating slug load Ive ever hunted with. The shot was in the base of the neck and exited the armpit on the opposite side, if I didnt know any better Id thought the deer had been shot with a high powered rifle due to the extreme trauma. For anyone looking for a super accurate slug thats easy to load and absolutely flattens deer then Id say this ones for you!|

|Fantastic Sabot Slugs!!||12/20/2014|
|Ive been wanting to try these LBC sabots and Longshot powder...WOW what a cannon! Im using 3.5 inch Fiocchi hulls that I cut to 3 inch using BPIs Trim Doctor because 3 inch hulls werent available. All of BPIs loads I tried gave great groups in my H&R Ultra Slug Hunter, but I settled on their load using a 3 inch Fiocchi hull roll crimped and 50 grains of Longshot powder, it shoots very tight groups and Im quite certain they will prove devastating in the deer woods. Products like these make slug loading easy and enjoyable! Try them you wont be disappointed!|

|Effective and economic||12/23/2013|
|I gave up buying Rem Coppersolids because it was costing me 3.50 a pull. I was a rifle and pistol reloader so I thought I would take a stab at these. The accuracy is consistent and tight for a slug. I took 4 deer this year with one being a 10 point buck. The 10 point was a 100 yard shot.|

|Great All-Around Slug||11/12/2013|
|I loaded these with longshot powder, and they work great. They are very accurate in rifled barrels, but can also be good in smooth bores. This is by far my favorite slug by BPI.|
|- Thomas Condon, MN|
|great shooting slug||1/28/2013|
|I was using remington slugs but they were getting so expensive I had to make a change.I got the LBC bluforce slugs, didnt really know what to expect, I did a lot of research, and finally used a load with longshot powder. I am getting a 1.5 in groups at 50 yards and 2in at 100, wouldnt be afraid to shoot out to 150-200 yd range. I love these slugs. Easy load too.|
