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 #0721610 LBC Sabot Slug. This is only a shorthand general notation that is used by our ballistic lab for general identification purposes.
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.
