INEXPENSIVELY ROLL YOUR OWN SABOT SLUGS

 Sabot Pressure Wad - SPW  This one unit piece incorporates a sabot, aerodynamic vortex, double chevron cushion, and gas seal.  There is no other single unit piece available nor a sabot/wad team so aerodynamically designed to create a longer in flight profile to produce the precision results as is called for in the shooting industry today.  We are sure you will find this product to be the most exceptional sabot slug that you have had the pleasure of shooting.

 Note:   The slug compartment is splined to hold the slug in place guaranteeing maximum rotational spin to the bullet from the barrel rifling therefore increasing the accuracy. 


 

 Key Benefits:

  • SPW discards on impact
  • Splined holding compartment allows for maximum rotational spin from rifling to the slug - no slipping
  • Double Chevron for lower recoil curve
  • Aerodynamic Vortex for added in flight stability and adding back drag
  • Specialized polymer material to withstand temperatures well below 0°C 

** Cost Saving Note**

With our unitized SPW, there are no sabots to fly off and destroy your chronograph.


 

Design Your Own Slug - Choose Your Material

YOU DECIDE WHAT'S BEST

Test to See What Works or Doesn't Work

  • You can design loads to your specifications. Not all shooters are looking for the same results, but are shooting for the same target - accuracy.

  • Load for your preferences. You will find that when you are loading for velocity and a flat trajectory pressures can tend to be down from the norm of other wads due to the double chevron of the SPW. Therefore with some loads you will enjoy lower recoil and better performance than what is found in factory loaded ammunition - Just another little design benefit.

  • There are no velocity restrictions on the SPW.  It works equally as well at 1600 fps and beyond as it does at 1000 fps.  You choose the velocity you wish to shoot and the energy you wish to deliver.

Here is a sampling of slug/bullet adaptations tested in trial loads.  The applications for each differed and some homemade ideas didn't work, but that is the beauty of our Sabot Pressure Wad in allowing you to design/test/perfect your own slug.

 Additional Notes:

 
  • The SPW works equally well at 1,600 fps and beyond as it does at 1,000 fps regardless of barrel twist rate.
  • Best accuracy is achieved if all loaded shells (of same powder charge) be of equal finished length

  • The nose of the slug must not protrude beyond the roll crimp on the hull

  • Always use straight wall hulls

  • Some muzzle brakes can decrease accuracy
