Slow-Motion Video: Sabot Slug Shot from a Smoothbore Shotgun - 8

Modern shotguns and slugs can be extremely accurate, but only if you select the right rounds for your gun. This video illustrates exactly why you don't want to shoot a sabot slug through a smoothbore shotgun. Watch the slug tumble its way toward the steel plate before impact. Not exactly the definition of accuracy here.

Only problem is, they didn't show that same slug fired from a rifled barrel.

Slow-mo bullet videos never get old. I agree with schmakenzie too, some slow-mo videos of broadhead performance would be pretty interesting.

Very interesting video. Dcast brought up a good point though, would even a small amount of rifling like in a rifled choke make any difference in that? And will the difference in chokes make a change in the flight of a rifled slug NOT a sabot? Ex: How will a slug fly with a mod. as compared to a imp. cyl.

Hey, he hit the target, so it's not that big a deal, right? Lol... Seriously, I didn't think the flight would be that bad, good video.

When the sabot spins around the slug as it travels the length of the barrel you get similar results. Too many sabot slugs key hole a target between 75-100 yards. I wish Remington would bring back the Buckhammer.

I would like to see slow motion of all the variation of slug/gun combinations. Does a rifled choke really work? Do rifled slugs work as intended? And so on!

He hit the pie plate....Now all kidding aside, I would love to see some slow motion arrows with different types of broadheads.

It would make sense since there isn't any rifling to stabilize the slug. It would be just as interesting to see how the sabot falls away and how the slug's flight is disrupted.
