Sabots

10 posts in this topic

Over all what are the best sabots for a 20 gauge, I own a remington 870 with a 3-9x42 scope

The best ones are the ones that shoot best out of your gun and you'll only know that by trial and error. Each barrel is a little different so you need to shoot them all and find out which patterns best for you.

Generally speaking I'd stay away from the 3" but in the 2 3/4" line I happen to like Remington copper solids and I've also had good luck with Winchester supremes in the past. I think the Federals are fine too, these two have always just patterned good for me though.

I used hornady sst's last season and the performed well for me, but like lawdog said it just depends on whatever shoots better in your gun.

Every magazine article and test I've ever read said the 3" were not as accurate as the 2 3/4". Besides that, the 2 3/4" pack one whale of a punch, there is simply no need for the 3".

Anyone read FFG about the new 3 1/2" 20ga slug gun? Interesting, but I don't know about the need for it.

Sorry, I only ever shot 20ga rifled slugs

I read a review about it last fall. I believe it was in field and stream. I dont remember all of what they said, but they tested the 20 ga 3 1/2 in, and the hornady sst 12 ga, and a lightfield 12 ga. The 20 ga was in the bottom of those three and they said it was not as accurate as the other 2. you may be able to still find the article still.

Hastings is making the 20ga 3 1/2 slugs for a H&R barrel. They call them "Laser Accurate Sabot Slugs" and they have a couple videos on a popular video hosting site.

"The plastic sabot stays with the bullet until it hits the target, then falls off." They claim it makes it more accurate this way.

They also make them in 12ga and other lengths.

Cabela's sells them, but not the 20ga 3.5"

I was hoping someone would try them and tell me how they did. smile

    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
    • How close is the access hole to the wall? I have a friend that built a large loft in his shed and utilized cammed pulleys and weights to allow him to hinge the stairway from the loft. Basically, with the cammed pulley, it stays down when he pulls it down and stays up when he puts it up... all with little to no effort.
