I did some searching and couldn't find any posts about current prices/sales for slugs/sabots. I was hoping to get it started to spread the word when good sales are happening.

Currently in my area Dick's sporting goods has sales on

Hornady
STT - $10.98

Remington
Copper Sabots - $11.98 sale - $4 mail in rebate (Not sure on the limit though)
Core-Lokt - $14.98 sale - $4 mail in rebate (Again, not sure on limit)

I noticed MidwayUSAhttp://www.midwayusa.com has STTs for sale at $9.99 a box. Not sure what shipping is like though.

Also, there are currently Remington and Winchester rebates for $5 off a box, limit of 2 though.

http://www.remington.com/pdfs/2007-FallPromoCoupon.pdf

Are there any good places to buy sabots by the case and not the box? Trying to find all my cheapest options.

Might want to drop by the ASSA Clubhouse Store for some of those "Other" Sabots in box lot or case lots, or maybe try Slugs R Us for more of the same. Just a thought. :wink: :wink:

This seems crazy but I was at Dick's Sporting goods and they had Rem. Buckhammers marked down to 5.97 from 7.97. They didn't say they were on sale or clearance either. The local wallyworld was selling them for 7 and change. Rem. also has a rebate out on them for $5 off a box, limit of 2 boxes. Either way, this seems like a really good deal. I've heard decent things about them so I think I'm going to try these out. I may jump on that STT deal mentioned above too because they worked really well for me last year. They're just hard to find sometimes.

Hey, guys, you know if you just load your own you won't even have to deal with those high prices.

I just bought 18 boxes of Winchester 20 Ga. BRI sabot slugs at Sports Authority for $1.27 per box of 5. They were on clearance sale so I bought them all. They aren't what I would hunt with, but certainly will shoot a lot of paper with them. Not as accurate as the Hornady SST's or Barnes Tipped Sabots, but for punching paper they are much more in my price range.

I just bought 12 gauge Winchester Rifled hollow point slugs for $3.17/box of 5 at Wally World. If it makes anyone feel better, they forgot to charge me for the box of 00 buck! I'll probably go take care of that tomorrow, though.

Hey Turbo1889,
This really interests me. I use to reload shot shells years ago and got out of it. I had heard of people reloading the standard deer slugs but not the sabots with a pistol bullet in it. I have hunted with a pistol for years. The Hornady XTP bullet is one that I use a lot. So it sounds like I might get back into reloading for Winchester SX3 slug gun if I can figure this out. :)

Any information on what you use and where you get your supplies would be appriciated.

Thanks,
Jim

Well, I'm casting and loading my own and using a combination of Lyman "wad-slugs" and full bore with lube groove Dixie style slugs. Now others have had very good luck both with the "Pressure Wad" style slugs and the "Gualandi" brand slugs. Now if you want to lead true sabots with the XTP pistol bullets then there is only one place I know of that sells both the sabots and has the load data for that venture. That would be "COLLET CUP SABOT SLUGS" (clickable link).

As I previously mention you can also go for the "pressure-wad" style sabot slugs from slugsrus.com, midwayusa.com, or precisionreloading.com these are a slug design similar to the Remington buckhammer where the slug and sabot/wad do not seperate but impact the target as a unit.

Then their are the Gualandi brand slugs for reloaders only one of which is a sabot slug but all of which will work out of any barrel; rifled, rifled choke, or straight smooth bore. Check them out on the Gualandi Web Site (clickable link) and you can buy them at midwayusa.com or ballisticproducts.com

As to why I'm loading what I'm loading. Well the "wad-slugs" use just a regular old shot-wad for a sabot and the slug just goes inside where the shot usually is. I've got the Lyman mold because I like it best, but the two Lee molds along with some others are out on the market as well. These wad slugs are also available pre-cast and ready to go from gardnerscache.com and there is also the NwCP shuttle cock slugs available at customprojectile.com which are also ready made "wad-slugs". Then if you want to go into full bore, non-sabot, slugs there are several molds to chose from for on those as well and of course for those it's always possible to gave a custom mold cut to your specs. So the main reason I load those two styles is because I'm already set up to cast and got plenty of lead and shot-wads are a dime a dozen so considering I don't have to pay for my lead just put in a little casting time I can make my own slug reloads for cheaper then you can make regular trap loads. About the only way I can afford to send as many slugs down range as I do.

Now I should warn you about the whole "wad-slugs" deal they sound like the perfect idea but there are complications because the wad-petals are so much thiner then a real sabot. Basically what you get is a situation where guns get "picky". Some guns will shoot them nice and tight and others won't then of course you throw into the equation that some guns like certain loads and not others. I've seen some guns cloverleaf these style slugs at 100 yards (all holes touching each other on the target) with just about every load. Then I've seen some guns (mine) which likes some loads and hates others, and some guns will flat out refuse to digest them with respectable accuracy. So if you like to tinker with various loads until you find the loads your gun loves then wad-slugs could be for you as well. If you just want to load'em up and shoot and have them all shoot with respectable accuracy then forget the wad-slugs go for true sabots, "pressure wads", Gualandi, or full bore slugs (but for full bore slugs stay away fromt the Lyman full bore foster mold -- it takes tinkering as well).

Turbo1889,
Thanks for the information. I appriciate you taking the time to put that all down in print for me. It looks like this is going to be something I need to do.
