350 gr sabot 2000 fps. 12 gauge
« on: January 23, 2011, 06:11:05 PM »
In general season, general ares in MT we can shoot sabots in our shot guns. I'm working on some that I have high hopes for. I'll shoot them in the 870 with my slug barrel and a straight 4X scope. I have not been able to try them but I will asap and post the results and targets. I did some roll crimps and some fold crimps. The fold crimp is listed at 1700 fps, the roll crimp is listed at 2000 fps, that faster then the .500 S&W.


Fiocchi 2 3/4 hull

BPI 12 Gauge gas seal

1/4" hard foam spacer

RSS sabot with Hornady 50 cal pistol bullet 350 gr

30 gr 800X

clear over shot card

Roll crimp

The fold crimp is the same but with 28 gr 800X

The roll crimp I had to trim the case down 1/16" to get it to be tight and be the same size of normal

2 3/4 shells which is NOT 2 3/4".


DO to the increasing cost of energy, Gas,and Electricity. The Down turn in the economy.
The light at the END of the TUNNEL is Now TURNED OFF!!!
