Lightfield Ammunition Corporation specializes in manufacturing the hardest hitting, most accurate saboted slugs available to today's hunters for use in their rifled shotgun barrels, even at extended ranges. During that all-important split second immediately after a slug is fired and prior to its exiting the barrel, maximum spin is imparted to the locked sabot/slug assembly. Once a Lightfield Hybred® EXP Sabot Slug Shotshell clears the muzzle the design produces incredible projectile stability through both the supersonic and especially the subsonic phases of the slug's flight. Maximized projectile spin rate and flight stability are the most important factors when incomparable consistency and accuracy are the goals. 5 rounds per box.
i shoot them out of a mossberg 500 20ga with a fully rifled barrel and a nikon 3-7x32 scope. i get 1.75 inch 3 shot groups at 100 yards. remember out of a 20ga. i chose not to shoot at a living being past 125 though because the 20ga. load drops off energy wise past 125. but the mushroom is incredible. as soon as i find the slug i will post a picture of it in comparriosn to another bullet. you will not belive how big the 20ga slug gets! check out the 8 point it poked. he only ran 40 yards

BEST SLUG FOR M'BERG 500 RIFLED BARREL, TRIED MANY
THESE WERE BY FAR THE BEST IN MY RIFLED BARRELED MOSSBERG 500! if you are unhappy past 50+ yds with your rifled shotgun, try these! I finally found these after spending too much money trying many other sabot slugs. These lightfields gave me under 3" groups at 80+ yds. I found most all sabots were good up to about 50 yds including remington aeortips, copper solids, sluggers, brenneke KOs & Hornady SSTs. After about 50-60 yds they would frustrate me with flyers. The Winchester Partition Golds shot as well as these Lightfields with a tight, repeatable group as far as accuracy, but the LIGHTFIELD EXP 1 1/4 oz slugs are hefty compared to the 7/8oz partition golds, and they make a HUGE hole, with a noticibly smaller hole from the partition golds. These do have a bit of kick to them, but with these Lightfield EXP sabots I know I have a dead deer out to almost 100 yds, and hunters don't feel recoil in the woods anyways :-) . If I run out of these I will shoot the partition golds as a backup, but nothing else ever again in my Mossy 500 rifled slug gun. These are the secret I was looking for to make my rifled slug gun a killer out to 100 yds! I knew the gun was capable, just needed to find out what it liked, and THESE ARE IT!

I had to go to a red dot this year.My eyes are not as good as they use to be .But I could still get a 1/2 group at 50 yards.This is one of the Deer that the lightfield put on the wall.

Anyone that doesn't prefer these slugs has firearm and/or barrel issues. I first saw them about 10 years ago at a SHOT Show and shoot nothing else out of my Rem 1100 since. Dropped a doe at 235 yds (poke and hope) but she didn't move. My dad doubted me, I made him step it off and pick up casing.

The 20ga certainly has enough power to kill deer or bear out to 100 yards. The Lightfield slugs are excellent but should only be used in a rifled barrel. That's where they get their accuracy from. I don't reccomend a full choke for any type of slug.
Using a rifled barrel for whitetail deer, yes. I wouldn't recommend using a smooth bore or choked barrel with this slug. This is a sabot slug and won't act like a rifled slug would in a smooth bore. It is a great slug for rifled barrels though. I know that it will take down deer in 20 gauge. I don't really know about bears though. I would say that you could kill a bear with their 20 gauge slugs, but I would personally want to use a 12 gauge if I were going to try to kill a bear with it.
Lightfield would suggest that you only use 2 3/4 in slugs in guns chambered in 2 3/4 or 3 inches. The reasoning is that there is enough gap between the end of the shell and where the chamber necks down to the barrel on a 3 1/2 chamber using a 2 3/4 in sabot slug that the sabot could be push out and separate from the slug, possibly causing pressure issues. From My understanding lightfield is the only manufacturer warning of this possibility. They are also one of the few manufacturers making sabots in 3 - 3 1/2 inches. I think they recommend using the 3 1/2 in slug (or at least the 3 in) in 3 1/2 in chambers. I have never heard of anyone having any problems with this issue. I talked to someone associated with lightfield and they said that they had seen some guns that have erratic patterns with undersized slugs.
I have personally used 2 3/4 in lighfield slugs in my 3 1/2 in chambered Mossberg 835 Ultimag 12 gauge with rifled barrels for years and not seen any issues myself. Accuracy is great. I wouldn't use it with a smooth bore though as sabot slugs are made for rifled barrels. And if Lightfields warnings worry you then just play it safe and use a 3 1/2 in slug with a 3 1/2 in barrel.
You will have to experiment with the old "Foster" style slugs to find out which one your gun likes. The Remington Slugger, Winchester rifled slug or the Brenneke rifled slug would be a great place to start.
