sabot slugs
 
can you shoot sabot slugs out of an unrifled barrel that is un choked? if so i assume accuracy is bad.

Yes you can and the accuracy is bad.

BWilder 10-07-2012 04:04 AM

Lol i did once shoot sabot slugs out of a mossberg 18.5 inch smoothbore... at 100 yards I did get close.. but you could actually SEE the round kinda tumble...

smoothbore and sabot = waste of money

My question is why? When a box of sabots cost 16 bucks for 5 and accuracy sucks what's the point? Your just pissing away money. Buy the cheap 1 oz slugs for smoothbore

BWilder 10-07-2012 02:10 PM

i was just wondering. i am picking up a rifled barrel but only have a smoothbore now

robocop10mm 10-07-2012 02:59 PM

Don't listen to them. The sabots work just fine from a smooth bore...at 5 yards :)

BWilder 10-07-2012 03:07 PM

well im not going to shoot them until i order the rifled barrel. theyre expensive lol
