Used this round in my H&R Ultra Slug 12 gauge and I've dropped 3 deer right where they stand every time! Little on the expensive side but well worth it!

Great ammo ran about 15 rounds thru my 12 gauge a week before deer season to sight in the scope.after getting it sighted in me and my son went out and got our selves our first buck. About 50 yards away thru and thru the lung. Never going to use anything else. But it is expensive shop around and find the best deal. (Posted on 12/12/13)

Shoot farther and more accurately with this ammo than you ever have before, this is the best money can buy, that is, if you have the money. Not exactly a bargain (Posted on 3/8/13)

Went to the range to zero. got on paper with standard slugs, then switched to Sabots. A 5 round group at 50 yds was a1.5 MOA.

Q: Would u recommend this round for home defense.

Posted On: 10/3/11 By: Nick

A: Hornady recommends that this 12ga SST Sabot Slug be fired through rifled shotgun barrels. It would be a good idea to see how these shells shoot and group through your particular shotgun before using it for home defense. In addition, this .458" diameter, 300gr slug exits the muzzle at 2000fps; at typical house distances, it would most likely completely penetrate even the thickest part of a large intruder with the velocity required to do significant damage on the other side.
Q: What is difference between a Sabot Slug and a standard slug?

Posted On: 9/28/11 By: Brent

A: Sabot slugs have a single projectile (similar to a large caliber rifle bullet) encased in a plastic discarding cover, or sabot, which is intended to engage the rifling of a rifled shotgun barrel and offer improved accuracy. Standard shotgun slugs are larger diameter lead projectiles that are intended to be fired through a smooth bore.
Q: What is the difference between a sabot slug and a rifled slug?

Posted On: 9/28/11 By: Anonymous

A: A sabot slug is so named because the projectile, normally a copper design similar to that which might be used in large bore rifles, is placed inside a plastic "sabot" that bridges the gap between the diameter of the projectile and the larger diameter of the shotgun bore. These sabot slugs might be more accurate than other slug designs, and are likely to have a flatter trajectory, enabling the shooter to accurately place them out to 200 yards. Generally, they should not be fired in rifled shotgun barrels. A rifled slug is composed of lead and is normally about twice the weight of a sabot slug - in this case, more so, as most rifled 12ga slugs weigh around 700gr, while this sabot slug weighs only 300gr. The rifled slug is roughly the same diameter as the shotgun bore.
Q: How accurate can SST Sabot slugs be expected to be and what velocity. Can they be shot out of smooth barrels or does it have to be a rifled shotgun barrel? thanks.

Posted On: 9/27/11 By: Juan

A: Hornady recommends that these 12ga SST sabot slugs be fired only from a rifled barrel. With the right barrel, groups of two inches or less at 100 yards can be expected. Their listed muzzle velocity is 2000fps.
Q: Are these only effective out of rifled barrels? If useable out of a smoothbore, would one choke be better than another?

Posted On: 9/27/11 By: Scott

A: While these SST sabot slugs will definitely fire in a smoothbore shotgun barrel, the manufacturer (Hornady) recommends their use only in rifled barrels due to accuracy reasons.
