    D[​IMG]elivers true 200 yard accuracy and you'll achieve sub-2" groups at 100 yards. The 300 grain FTX projectile lead and fires it at a blistering 2000 fps. The sharp point increases the ballistic coefficient of the FTX, allowing it to fly faster, farther and on a flatter trajectory. On impact, the Flex Tip initiates expansion at all velocities.

    That is sales brochure fluff. Have you tested them yet?

    I may have just found a replacement for the Rottweil Brenneke sabot slugs that I like so well.
    Has anybody fired any yet? Are they actually on the market right now?

    There has to be someone around that has used them and can give us a review other than sales claims. Looks like they are available. No way I'm going to buy any until I can see an independent review.

    If I can find some, I'll buy a couple of boxes just to try them out.

    If you do, let me know how they do, and cost, please. I shoot 12ga. sabots for deer.

    I think I'll stick to the old rifled slug. I can get more for the same money and body armor or not I can't see someone getting up and back into the action after getting hit in the chest with 1oz of lead. Since I don't hunt with slugs that should be enough for my home defense.
